December Birthstone Blue Topaz

December has several different Birthstones to pick from: Turquoise, Blue Topaz, and my favorite Modern December Birthstone-Tanzanite. I'm going to focus on Blue Topaz for this post.

Topaz comes in a variety of colors, and is often colorless.  Natural heat or artifically applied heat changes the colors of Topaz.  There are 3 different colors of Blue Topaz: Sky Blue, Swiss Blue, and London Blue Topaz.  Each very beautiful in it's shade.  Topaz is a very hard stone, and can tolerate a little more wear and tear than other gemstones. 

Topaz is mined in several areas on the globe including: US and Mexico, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Nigeria, China and Pakistan. When looking at the healing powers of Topaz, we can see it has been used for mental focus of dreams and goals, and also balances emotions.  Many have referred to it as the stone that can help find Ture love, or pure love.  Topaz influences the upper chakras and provides tranquility, psychic knowledge, and spiritual growth. It is a stone that essentially helps in communication of all kinds, and helps to harmonize Body, Mind and Spirit.

If you would like to shop for jewelry we've created with Topaz, happy shopping!
