Blue Topaz is a birthstone for December.
In mythology, topaz is portrayed as a gem of peace and healing.
Almost as hard as sapphire, blue topaz’s durable nature and natural fire has made it a popular precious gem for commemorating important life occasions.
Topaz is often heat treated to enhance the beautiful blues which can range from a very light sky blue to a deeper azure colour. It can also have a slightly turquoise hue, reminiscent of aquamarine.
