What colour is a Topaz?

Topaz comes in a variety of colours, from yellows, bright oranges, and pinks to ocean blues, earthy greens, and browns. It’s most commonly sought after in shades of yellow, which range from pale champagne to strong golds.

The Imperial topaz, with its deep reddish-orange colour, is one of the most prized variations. Additionally, blue topaz, often created through treatments, has gained popularity as an affordable and stunning alternative.

The blue topaz is the traditional gift for those celebrating a fourth anniversary.

What does a Topaz Symbolise?

Ancient civilizations cherished it for its perceived ability to bring luck and prosperity. Some cultures saw it as a healer, attributing powers to cure and fortify.

Moreover, as a symbol of love and loyalty, topaz embodies enduring affection and safeguards against negative energies, earning its place as a cherished gemstone of multifaceted meaning.
