Only a few people know that Imperial Topaz can come—very rarely—in multi-color crystals. The piece in the picture displays a vibrant red tip with the remainder of the piece a more typical topaz orange. Occasionally a cut stone with this multi-color phenomenon can be found in the topaz market in Brazil. If the piece is large, clean, well-proportioned and generally beautiful the dealer to dealer price will be thousands of dollars per-carat. How beautiful the natural treasures of the earth can be!!!
