This is a transparent to translucent imperial topaz crystal with very good orange color and a silky, glassy surface. Weak fluorescence under both longwave and shortwave UV. Examination under the hand lens reveals a very little amount of scattered edgewear/microchipping but overall in quite good condition. Cleaved base (very typical with topaz) but needs a stand if you prefer your gem crystals to display vertically.
