November’s birthstone the topaz has an ancient history, with a beautiful present! Topaz jewelry can be an essential and beautiful part of your jewelry wardrobe.
From ancient people to modern man and women, the value of beautiful topaz has been recognized. This gem was on the first row of the Breastplate of Aaron in the Old Testament. The Breastplate of Aaron was a sacred plate worn by the High Priest of the Israelite, according to the Book of Exodus.
In pure form it is a colorless crystal. But if there are mineral impurities in the topaz, you will see different colors. Most famous is the orange topaz, which is what is usually considered the November birthstone. Thus orange color allows it to fit in beautifully with the other November birthstone: the bright canary yellow citrine.
However, blue topaz is gorgeous as well, and I have featured some beautiful jewellery with that as well, as well as many other colors that might come up. Sometimes genuine topaz will also be irradiated with heat to bring on different colors.
There is a new form of high tech enhancement that actually can be applied to any colorless stone – but is most often and most successfully applied to topaz – creating brilliant, rainbow colored “Mystic Topaz.” Mystic topaz is known for it’s lovely colors of greens, purples and other rainbow colors.
Topaz is an amazing quartz Mineral
Topaz is made of one of the most common materials in the world: quartz. And yet, some of the most beautiful minerals known are created because of this common stone. Pure topaz is clear, whitish-silver. The colors that you see are due to impurities in the stone, casting different gorgeous hues. Iron and chromium are the most common inclusions that give topaz its wide range of colors.
Topaz is one of the hardest of minerals, but does not have many industrial uses because it has perfect directional cleavage and can split. For that reason also you will not find many topaz carvings.
The first time I heard of this gem was in the movie by Hitchcock by the same name. “Topaz” is based on the real-life Sapphire Affair of 1962, and as such it is an espionage Cold-War thriller.
Crystal healers use blue topaz to access inner riches. That is great because citrine helps you with your outer riches!
Topaz helps in getting clarity, it is associated with the Throat Chakra as used by crystal healers.
Topaz is infamous because of the wide variety of colors: from lemon-yellow, to orange, to pink , to blue and of course the basic but beautiful white topaz.
Blue Topaz jewelry
Blue is one of the most common colors of topaz. However most of the blue topaz is white topaz that is irradiated and colored blue. Nonetheless, it is very desirable. I especially love the mystic topaz and blue topaz ring.
