For sale is a topaz group from the famous 2004 find at Skangyi, Burma. Sorry about the quality of pics, this is hard to capture, the largest crystal is double terminated at 58mm long as is the smaller sidecar crystal. Exceptionally good with sharp terminations, these glassy crystals, can be displayed from many many angles, and is much cleaner than the pics indicate, clear minerals are difficult to capture. We obtained this when traveling in Burma in 2012, they were hard to obtain then , now its much more so! Compare our price!

At the time there was a decent amount found, but very few in this size range.
