Blue Topaz is the birthstone for December. Blue may not necessarily be the first color that comes to mind when you think of December. You may think of rich reds or lush greens commonly used during Christmas. But since blue is traditionally the color of calm and quiet, it may be perfect for the hectic holiday season!
It is believed that the stunning blue shades of topaz gemstones are associated with learning, understanding, creative inspiration, and peaceful communication. Blue topaz can also help you to relax and resist chaos and negativity, as well as promote harmony and healing...this stone is simply made for the holidays!
During the Middle Ages, this mesmerizing stone was thought to heal both physically and mentally and even prevent death! The Greeks believed it had mystical powers to increase their strength and to make its wearer invisible. That could be interesting! The Romans believed it improved eyesight and the Egyptians included it in their great store of jewelry as a means to protect themselves from being injured!
There are three hues of blue topaz: Sky, Swiss and London Blue. Sky and Swiss are more on the lighter side, while London Blue is deeper and richer. Naturally occurringblue topaz is rare, so usually colorless, gray or pale yellow topaz is heat treated and irradiated to a more desired darkerblue color.
The gorgeous blue topaz, when given as a gift, symbolizes eternal love and faithfulness.
