The Pikes Peak area in Colorado is, of course, world famous for its Amazonite and smoky Quartz, but Topaz is not that commonly seen in collections as part of the mineral suite from here.  This off-matrix specimen from Glen Cove at Pikes Peak, is beautifully and complexly terminated, some faces of which are mirror-smooth and other are naturally etched and display micro-growth structures and patterns.  The Topaz is colourless and water-clear, mainly gemmy and where detached from it matrix is conchoidally fractured.  A great and rare example of Topaz from Glen Cove at Pikes Peak, Colorado.
