Topaz

Precious Topaz, Birthstone for November:   

gem_topaz_smTopaz is harder (8 on a scale of 10) than most gemstones and comes in a number of colors – white, blue, green, yellow, champagne, gold, orange, pink and even a rare red from old Russia. The blues and probably the greens are mostly irradiated and heat treated from white rough although a few of these colors were natural. Most of the finest gems today come from Brazil (see photo), although the largest champagne oval is from Mexico. 

Topaz crystals (non-gem grade) are among the largest ever found. Some have weighed several tons. I believe only quartz crystals occasionally match these behemoths.

Metaphysical Properties – 3rd & 7th chakras, helps fine tune the digestive system and therefore increases the assimilation of nutrients and production of energy. Combining this with the effect on the solar plexus will-center, Topaz may facilitate right action. Topaz also augments the energy formation in the 3rd chakra destined to be sent up to the 4th, the heart chakra – so it has an important relationship to the propensity of love in all it’s forms.
