description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Xanda Mine, Virgem da Lapa, Minas Gerais, Brazil <br /><br />5 1/4" tall <br /><br />Some of the world's finest blue topaz crystals occur in the pegmatite deposits of Minas Gerais, Brazil and this is one of them. It is a bold loose crystal which displays a chisel shaped termination that is well recognized in topaz crystals. It is translucent to transparent. The color is characteristic of fine topaz from this locality. <br /><br />Importantly, the "bottom" end of this crystal is a re-heeled termination. It is covered by cookeite. The absence of any contact points on this piece makes it much more desirable.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This piece was traded from Robert Lavinsky in 2010.  </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia </p>
