Lovely peachy and pinkish peach Topaz faceting & cabbing rough crystals from Pakistan. These are well formed crystals (many fully terminated) and are a spectacular site to behold! This material looks conservatively 30%+ glassy clean to very slightly included and ranges in size from about 1-50+ grams with the bulk of the material in the 4-8+ gram range. A considerable portion of this is clean to slightly included with many gemmy areas that will need to be sawed and/or cobbed out. This rough is being sold by the kilo with a 1 kilo minimum. Please note that supplies are limited and sold on a first come basis.

  1. There is a new treatment out in Pakistan that is turning this material in a lovely Tangerine color that rivals the best Imperial Topaz from Brazil. The material is being irradiated and is stable with little or no signs of treatment. I have seen the treated material being sold as natural; however, please note that Pakistan DOES NOT produce natural orange Topaz and everything that you see come by you of this color from Pakistan should be suspect. From my understanding it is only the Gilgit material that is treating to this orange color and not the Katlang material.

  2. A very interesting fact that has come by me is that this material is being irradiated ON MATRIX. This will give the appearance of being a natural occurrence so please beware!

  3. I have acquired some treated material that is at GIA for formal analysis and will post results once they become available.
