Beautiful paraiba color topaz. Top of the line color for the topaz species. Strikingly beautiful. Two stones, 4mm each set in sterling silver to show the stones' simplistic beauty. Size 7 ring with a total stone weight of 0.50 carats. Topaz is found in nature in many different colors and several varieties of blue. This blue, however, is the blue green tone of the highly valued and sought after Paraiba Tourmaline. Both Paraiba Topaz and Tourmaline are coincidently found in Brazil, in mining areas where there are significant deposits of chromium and copper, yielding the beautiful and unusual color of paraiba. This is the second most sought after topaz, after red topaz and possibly competes with imperial topaz among some gem buyers. Future valuation projection: significantly higher. Topaz is the Birth Stone of November.
Topaz Mysticism and Lore:
Astrologically, topaz is ruled by the sun and by fire, under the zodiacal sign of Scorpio. Topaz is a protection stone, and is believed to protect against envy, disease, injury, sudden death, sorcery and negative magick, and mental illness. It is believed to relieve depression, anger, fear, greed, rage, and all disturbing emotions. Placed under your pillow, topaz is thought to prevent nightmares and sleep walking. Historically it has been used to relieve the pain of arthritis and rheumatism, as well as regulating the digestion. It is sometimes worn for weight loss. Topaz is used to bring wealth and money. According to Edgar Casey, topaz brings an energy of playfulness and joy into one's life. He recommended use of topaz anytime you need to make a fresh start with a smooth and happy transition.
