There is a major error in the identification of the contributors of the American Golden Topaz to the Smithsonian Museum. The identifying museum card correctly states:
“Gift of the Rockhound Hobbyists of America through the efforts of the six regional federations of minerological societies and Drs. Marie and Ed Borgatta, 1988″ The Borgattas were the major contributors of the Topaz.
