For sale is very nice and great sized topaz crystal from the Hairy Peruvian mine, Qld. Weight is 148gms. This crystal is fully terminated, with no cleaves or damage. Ex Garry Farnham collection. On examining Mindat, I see that examples of topaz from this old mine, are very scant, and hot even a blue one exhibited. While they all may have been mined 30 to 40 years ago, at that time they were not uncommon, as the Mindat page may indicate. Please note the whitish areas on the top termination are not dings or contacts, all natural!
