February 2014 GemStone ~ Blue Topaz

Topaz

The name Topaz may derive from Topazos, a word meaning ‘to seek’ – the other possible derivation of the gemstone’s name is the sanskrit word tapaz, which means ‘fire.’ Topaz was used in ancient Egypt and Rome and in the jewelry of eighteenth century French and Spanish royalty. Its popularity increased and spread to England and France in the nineteenth century. In the Middle Ages in Europe, Topaz was believed to enhance mental powers and prevent insanity. It was also said to improve poor vision, promote favor with kings and civil authorities, increase wisdom and soothe anger. In current metaphysical thought, Topaz is viewed as emanating a variety of beneficial energies, varying according to the type and color.
