Re: Digging Texas Topaz

One thing that will be helpfull is that when you think you have a Topaz, get a known piece of quartz and hold one in each hand, and rub with your thumb. The Topaz should feel soapy compaired to the quartz. Screening is fun but taking a chunk of rock out of a stone, then trimming it to show the Topaz off (to me) is a lot more fun.
Good Luck
