description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Northern Areas, Pakistan <br /><br />3 1/4" tall <br /><br />This loose crystal is a wonderful one for the following reasons: <br /><br />(a) It is as lustrous as polished glass. <br /><br />(b) All of the crystal is facet quality. <br /><br />(c) The color is pleasing although some crystals from this locality are more deeply colored. <br /><br />(d) The morphology of the crystal is interesting. One termination is present. It is complex and resembles a faceted jewel and is not the more widely recognized "chisel shape." Unusual crystal habits are also highly <br />desirable. <br /><br />(e) The crystal is elongated along the c-axis compared with other topaz crystals from this locality. <br /><br />(f) All of the vertices are in perfect condition. There is very minor chipping on some of the edges although I have not seen any crystals of this size, internal quality, color and morphology which are free of this chipping which is so limited it is not evident in the photo. <br /><br />(g) It is better than literally thousands of other Pakistani topaz crystals that I have seen offered for sale all over the world.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This piece was bought from a primary source supplier in early 2010.  </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia    </p>
