Description: Placer mined topaz has a weathered exterior due to it having been found in a stream. These pieces have all washed down from their original deposit. They are a clean, clear "white" topaz, and phenomenal for faceting or other lapidary skills. Topaz has the brightest luster out of any crystal in the silicate group, so when you shine it up, it will sparkle like crazy.
Chemical Composition: SiO2
Appearance: Translucent/ Transparent
Inclusions: Minimal, there are cracks because of this being placer mined. Most is facet grade and clean. every so often there is a foggy one, but for the most part, once you pass the weathered exterior, this is phenomenally clean material.
