Danburite is often confused with Topaz for its similarity both in habit and appearances, therefore it needs to be emphasised in its description as its identifying features which can be the separation between them of SG, having no cleavage, and the blue fluorescene.
The crystal may look the same containing pyramids and basal pinacoids to topaz, however, a notation is required for the separating features such as that danburites have domineering macro-domes, whilst topaz can display bracy-domes.
- i don't know where you want to put these on the flashcard": (actually illustrations can be useful). ? is this the right place to discuss it all. Thanks
Hi, Yes that should all be mentioned on the page of Danburite and Topaz, the flashcard is just a small and quick overview that will be placed in the top right corner of the page on the gemstone. Have a look at http://gemologyproject.com/wiki/index.php?title=Diamond to get an idea --Doos 06:10, 25 March 2006 (PST)
p.s.: it is best to make it a very short description, otherwise the flashcard would take up the whole page (so the long explanation will be done on the page of Danburite itself, not in the template) --Doos 06:13, 25 March 2006 (PST)
