Just a great parcel of precious Topaz from Ouro Preto, Brazil. This parcel has a great mix of colors, from Orange, to Peach, to Apricot. This is the most valuable form of Topaz, worth about 10x more than standard Blues and Champagnes. The precious Topaz mined in Ouro Preto is easy to distinguish from the Brownish Cognac and Champagne Topaz coming out of Afghanistan and elsewhere because the Ouro Preto Topaz has a slightly higher refractive index. Where all other Topaz measures out in the 1.60-1.62 range, the Ouro Preto precious Topaz generally measures in the 1.61-1.63 range, sometimes even up to 1.64. For this reason, it’s sometimes even mistaken for Tourmaline.
We’ve gotten a bunch of this Topaz in recently, so we’re offering it at well below wholesale. But this material is hard to come by, so don’t miss out. These stones are mostly eye clean with a few exceptions. Lots of top quality Topaz in this parcel. The average size is around 5x7x3mm
I took pictures of these stones in high magnification against a white background to give you the best idea of color and quality. As a certified gemologist I can verify that the above description is accurate and that this stone/stones have been tested in the gem lab to verify identity and natural origin.
Color: Medium Orange, Peach and Apricot
