NEW: Thomas Range Topaz on Rhyolite Matrix # UT05

Super high quality Topaz crystal on a Rhyolite matrix...indeed an excellent specimen! Exhibited throughout this magnificent crystal is the very desirable, and sought after, deep sherry color. Razor sharp terminations throughout makes one think that this was faceted by a quality jeweler! This beauty-of-a-gem miniature exhibits: a very high clarity and luster; captivating inclusions; and is quite the chunky single crystal for this species.

I was quite fortunate to procure several awesome specimens the summer of 2010 directly from my real good friend, and colleague who worked on the most recent extensive mining project at the Maynard's Claim. They were mined in 2009. When they were done they had to cover up the site, and reseed it according to the terms required by the State of Utah.

I am told that it is highly unlikely, due to the high cost of a serious mining venture like this, that such an effort will never be made again. At least not in the foreseeable future. Here is an opportunity for you to add a top shelf quality example to your collection. I took several pictures 360 to give you an idea of how simply gorgeous it is. This dazzling gem quality specimen is mesmerizing. This is a real jewel!

Speaking of famous locales. I was very fortunate to procure several of these awesome specimens last summer of 2010 from my real good friend, and colleague that worked on the recent extensive mining project at Maynard's Claim. These were mined in 2009, and the word is they when they were done, they had to cover up the site, and reseed it according to the terms required by the State of Utah.

It is highly unlikely, due to the high cost of a serious mining venture like this, that such an effort will never be made again...at least not in the foreseeable future! Here is an opportunity for you to add a quality piece to your collection.

I took several pictures 360 to give you an idea of how gorgeous it is. Still, it is that much better in person. Unusual bundle of gemmy crystals for the species. Just a dazzling, gem quality, specimen! This is a real jewel!

A beautiful cluster of over 6 larger crystals with several smaller ones, along with Rhyolite. This one was slightly trickier to photograph with all the reflecting light, bouncing back and forth from crystal to crystal. But I assure you that the sherry color is just as wonderful as in specimen #UT01 listed above. This attractive and gemmy miniature has perfect terminations, and displays very well.

Please always refer to specimen size in all my listings for the actual size, as this is what the final price is based on. Although picture colors can vary slightly from browsers to computers, I go to great lengths in photographing all mineral specimens with complete color accuracy, without any retouching whatsoever! My photo studio lighting consists of 4800K fluorescent lighting, which simulates the wavelengths of daylight. In some cases for a different effect I have utilized regular incandescent lighting to provide a different effect.
