The Popularity and History of Topaz

The Popularity and History of Topaz

Topaz is an eye-catching colored gemstone that's characterized by its vivid hues. You can find topaz in a wide range of colors including red, orange, peach, pink, gold, yellow and brown. Blue topaz, which is both the most rare and the most popular topaz color, is actually formed as the result of irradiation with gamma rays, meaning that some of the deeper blue topaz stones have been found to be radioactive! Talk about an impressive stone.

Adding to the uniqueness of the stone, because Topaz has been around for at least 2,000 years, over time, ancient communities have developed a variety of folklore tales surrounding it: Greeks, Romans and Egyptians all believed the mystical gemstone contained powers such as increasing strength, healing physical and mental disorders, and even preventing death.

If you're looking for a present for your wedding anniversary or shopping for a Sagittarius, then Topaz is your stone. Topaz gemstone jewelry is the suggested anniversary gemstone for those celebrating 4th, 19th or 23rd years of marriage and is also the birthstone for Sagittarians who are born between November 22nd and December 21st. At Brian Gavin Diamonds, we take joy in enhancing the beautiful vibrant stone by creating exquisite jewelry and have highlighted our favorite topaz pieces for your next gift.
