Dimensions: 4.7 cm x 4.3 cm x 2 cm

4.7 x 4.3 x 2.0 cm. A sharp 1.2 cm GEM crystal, and I mean GEM quality, perched in a natural pocket that has a thin layer of purple fluorite druse around the edges. It was then filled in with calcite, most of which has dissolved out (or been dissolved by previous owners) revealing the pristine topaz inside. Ex. Charlie Key Collection.
