Gemstone: Imperial Topaz / Yellow Topaz
Topaz is a silicate mineral made of aluminum and fluorine, and the name is thought to be derived from a Latin word meaning “fire”. Ancient Romans believed that Topaz protected a person while traveling, and in the Middle Ages, Europeans thought it enhanced mental powers, and protected the owner from curses and the evil eye.
Golden or Imperial Topaz, bestows confidence and charisma, but also encourages generosity and open heartedness. It attracts mentors and helps the wearer to recognize their own abilities. A good stone for self-realization, honesty and problem-solving. It helps you overcome problems and hurdles in life and aids in setting plans in motion.
While topaz is available in a variety of colours, yellow is the signature colour for the November birthstone. It is also the gift for 23rd and 50th anniversary.
