Burmese Topaz Introduction
The main component of Burmese topaz is silica muscovite, etc., and it also contains metal elements such as iron, aluminum, and manganese. However, unlike chalcedony, it is not a single crystal, but a polycrystalline complex similar to Hetian jade. The hardness is comparable to that of jadeite, with a Mohs hardness of 6-7. Burmese yellow has a delicate texture and moderate flexibility. For carvers, carving methods such as "relief carving, round carving, hollow carving, and intaglio carving" can be easily controlled. And because of its color and waxy texture, it is very attractive, and the stability of the Burmese yellow material is not easy to lose water and lose color, so it has become a dark horse in the Wenwan market.
However, the mining method of Burmese topaz is traditional manual excavation, and the yield rate is low. When making Burmese topaz carving products, it will be found that the proportion of waste is very high. The reason is that Burmese topaz on the market is generally flake material. The reason why Burmese topaz has not been able to produce large carvings.
The Burmese topaz dish will become patinaed after playing for a long time, and the color will become more moist, like beeswax. The color is soft, and the meat is even and delicate. The color of Burmese yellow ranges from light to deep, and can be divided into light yellow, light bright yellow, chicken oil yellow, bright yellow, orange yellow, and special Burmese red. The less impurities and the fuller the color, the higher the collection value.
