Topaz can contain inclusions

of thin Rutile needles just as Quartz commonly does.  As far

as we know, Burma is the only source for natural Rutilated Topaz.

More often sold as cabochons,

we facet these gems with care not only to ensure good polish and

full brilliance, but also to maximize the internal reflections of

the Rutile needles.  Each of these gems is unique.
