THE GOLDEN GEM
A prestigious gemstone praised throughtout centuries for its many unique durability, lustre and vibrant colour. Colourless or brown in its purest form, Topaz is a gorgeous stone that occurs naturally in many beautiful shades but rarely in purple, pink and dark blue. About 2000 years ago, Natural Garnet used this gem for decorations in the Muslim World. Natural Topaz is known as the gemstone of forgiveness and truth. Topaz was one of the 12 stones used to lay the foundation for the New Jerusalem's walls in heaven, according to the Bible. While the Egyptians attributed the gem's radiant glow to the mighty Sun God "Ra," the Romans, on the other hand, dedicated it to Jupiter, the king of all gods.
Natural Topaz gemstone comes in a variety of colours, but pure topaz is colourless and contains inclusions. Most topaz stones are given a more profound and brighter colour by a good quality cut and industrial treatments. The price of an extremely rare pink or orange topaz is comparable to that of a more common colour, such as yellow. Imperial topaz is by far the most expensive variety of topaz found in nature. It is scarce and has a bright orange colour with pink undertones. A genuine Imperial topaz is never treated, irradiated, or coloured artificially.
Topaz is a hard and durable gemstone with a Mohs Scale of 8, making it ideal and perfect for daily wear. A Topaz, like any other gem, must be kept safe from hard effects. The perfect separation of this stone can be difficult to achieve during the cutting process. However, most cutters place the stone's table 5-10% off the cleavage plane. As a result, the stone is much more stable, making it ideal for a wide range of jewellery, including rings, necklaces, and earrings.
Topaz is among the most prominent semi-precious gems on the market, especially the blue varieties. Numerous factors influence the quality of this appealing gemstone, the most pertinent of which is the colour.
The Ural Mountains in Russia and Texas in the USA are the regions that produce the majority of natural blue topaz. Silver topaz is a colourless variant of this gem found in Sri Lanka, Nigeria, and China. Pink topaz, on the other hand, because of its extreme rarity, is only found in Russia and the Kallang region of Pakistan.
