A fascinating inclusion piece. The needles in this colorless Topaz cabochon are not only oriented to create a kind of chatoyant effect, but the needles have an interesting iridescent flash in reflected light. It is a full spectral effect that is difficult to photograph accurately; it is perhaps best judged by the photograph above showing the base of the stone.
