The matched pair of greenish blue Lone Star cut topaz were faceted by Tom Zayko, of Mason, Texas.  The gems weigh 6.32 and 6.79ct, and are typical of the color from Comanche Creek, which Tom was known to hunt.  An early member of Texas Faceters' Guild, Tom was very active with the Fredericksburg Gem & Mineral Society for many years.  You can find Lone Star cut topaz and quartz all over the northern part of the Hill Country, that he donated to groups for gave to friends.  Tom was a man that knew how to create a high polish, and I admire that.
