12.30 ct. Colorado Topaz 'Reflector'
An interesting and lovely US piece -
this is a large faceted gem Topaz from Park Co., Colorado. Two factors set
this one apart - the excellent US cutting job and a pleasant little surprise
that becomes apparent under magnification. Though the stone is eye clean,
there is a tiny included crystal near the culet which is then reflected in all
the pavilion facets. The stone photographed with something a blue hue,
this is much less apparent in person - it is essentially colorless.
It's a fascinating piece for gem enthusiast that's for certain. Great!
