Description

The model used is a fantastic combination of Topaz and Smoky Quartz from Skardu, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan.

The size of the specimen is 145x99x103 mm (1891 grams).
I bought this one back in 2014.

The topaz cyrstal is translucent, with fantastic gem quality (no inner cracks) and light champagne colored. It is surrounded by big double terminated damage-fee Smokey Quartz crystals. The combination makes it a uniqe specimen.
