That is a gorgeous Topaz from Katlang. Deep rich color.

Thanks Don. I was told that it was an unusual color for the locality.

Great photos and minerals as usual Mike. I don't think I've ever seen the fluorite/spessartine association before from Tongbei. Unusual specimen.

Those fluorite inclusions from Llamas are amazing. I just spent my morning scrolling through this entire thread, and your collection is amazing to say the least!

A wonderful calcite/amethyst combination from Cata Mine - but my favourite is that wonderful gemmy topaz from Katlang, fine one!
