Topaz promotes individuality and creativity while providing self-confidence in your own decisions. It helps to remove doubts about your decisions and promotes the expression of ideas. Topaz acts as a catalytic trigger, and activates the laws of attraction and manifestation of your desires – it helps you to have faith in the universe’s desire to help you, prompting receptivity and willingness to act.

  • It helps one to creatively change one’s personal world.
  • Helpful in correcting unwanted, unloving behavior patterns.
  • Acts to replace negativity with love and joyfulness
  • Helps to initiate faith and further the quest for the enlightened state.
  • Enhances relaxation, creates lightness of spirit, and stimulates feelings of peace
  • Restores loss of taste, healing of wounds and skin eruptions, liver disorders, gall bladder, endocrine glands
  • Topaz balances emotions and calms passions. It releases tension and gives feelings of joy. Topaz is known as spiritual rejuvenation gemstone
  • Silver enhances the effects of topaz, acting as an additional conductor for topaz’s energy.
  • Topaz is particularly powerful when combined with Amethyst. As the topaz activates the laws of attraction and manifestation, the amethyst transforms the energies into spiritual vibrations to produce a soothing, clearing and stabilizing effect.
  • Topaz stimulates the endocrine system. It assists in general tissue regeneration. Topaz is valuable in the treatment of hemorrhages. It also increases poor appetite and helps fighting blood disorders.

Colors: Pink, green, red, gold, yellow, blue, white, reddish yellow, brown, gray and colorless.

Wedding anniversary: Topaz is the anniversary gemstone for the 4th and 19th year of marriage.

Imperial topaz is the anniversary gemstone for the 23rd year of marriage.

Description: Topaz is an aluminum fluorite silicate containing fluorine and has a chemical formula of Al2F2SiO4. It is one of the few gem minerals which, under suitable conditions, grow into enormous crystals. Topaz typically occurs in cavities in rhyolites and granite, in pegmatite dikes, and in high-temperature veins with cassiterite and tourmaline.

The stone is transparent with a vitreous luster. A light yellow, brown and pink variety of topaz are valued as a gemstone. The pure crystals of topaz used a great deal in jewelry.

History: It is believed that the topaz of modern mineralogists was unknown to the ancients and that the stone called topazos was the mineral chrysolite or peridot.

In ancient times, a figure of a falcon carved on a Topaz was thought to help earn the goodwill of kings, princes, and magnates. Topaz is Stone of Strength noted by Greeks. During medieval days it was thought to heal physical and mental disorders as well as prevent death.

In 1750 a Parisian jeweler discovered that the yellow Brazilian topaz becomes pink on exposure to a moderate heat, and this treatment has since been extensively applied so that nearly all the pink topaz occurring in jewelry has been heat-treated. Such “burnt topaz” is often known as Brazilian ruby, as is the very rare, natural red topaz.

Name’s Origin: The origin of the name Topaz generates confusion, as some references point to the Sanskrit word “tapaz”, meaning fire, while others believe it is named after Zeberget, an island in the Red Sea that the Greeks called Topazius, the ancient source of Peridot.

While some sources think this was due to ancient confusion between Topaz and Peridot, it now appears more likely that this name might have come from confusion with the Greek word “topasin”, which means to guess or conjecture, possibly in reference to the way fisherman sometimes lost the island in fog. Regardless, in history, the name was not consistently or specifically applied (it was once used to describe most yellow gems) and sometimes Topaz and Peridot are mentioned as being the same and sometimes different. Interestingly, in the famous book “The Curious Lore of Precious Stones”, the esteemed gemologist George Frederick Kunz (1856-1932) states that these two gems are the same species.

Topaz is an inherently romantic gem and features regularly in the titles of romance novels and honeymoon destinations. Its name indicates beauty, rarity, and wealth, and imparts a sense of timelessness.

While the golden yellow and blues of Topaz are the most widely known, topaz actually comes in a diverse array of striking colors. This combined with its beauty and durability makes topaz jewelry ideal for all occasions.

Description: Topaz is an aluminum fluorite silicate containing fluorine and has a chemical formula of Al2F2SiO4. It is one of the few gem minerals which, under suitable conditions, grow into enormous crystals. Topaz typically occurs in cavities in rhyolites and granite, in pegmatite dikes, and in high-temperature veins with cassiterite and tourmaline.

The stone is transparent with a vitreous luster. A light yellow, brown and pink variety of topaz are valued as a gemstone. The pure crystals of topaz used a great deal in jewelry.

History: It is believed that the topaz of modern mineralogists was unknown to the ancients and that the stone called topazos was the mineral chrysolite or peridot.

In ancient times, a figure of a falcon carved on a Topaz was thought to help earn the goodwill of kings, princes, and magnates. Topaz is Stone of Strength noted by Greeks. During medieval days it was thought to heal physical and mental disorders as well as prevent death.

In 1750 a Parisian jeweler discovered that the yellow Brazilian topaz becomes pink on exposure to a moderate heat, and this treatment has since been extensively applied so that nearly all the pink topaz occurring in jewelry has been heat-treated. Such “burnt topaz” is often known as Brazilian ruby, as is the very rare, natural red topaz.

Name’s Origin: The origin of the name Topaz generates confusion, as some references point to the Sanskrit word “tapaz”, meaning fire, while others believe it is named after Zeberget, an island in the Red Sea that the Greeks called Topazius, the ancient source of Peridot.

While some sources think this was due to ancient confusion between Topaz and Peridot, it now appears more likely that this name might have come from confusion with the Greek word “topasin”, which means to guess or conjecture, possibly in reference to the way fisherman sometimes lost the island in fog. Regardless, in history, the name was not consistently or specifically applied (it was once used to describe most yellow gems) and sometimes Topaz and Peridot are mentioned as being the same and sometimes different.
