Silver topaz is so prized to me. Please look closely at this gorgeous orthorhombic crystal. It is so versatile and striking that all collectors should have one or two in their sets.
The meaning of the word topaz comes from the Greek word tapazos meaning to seek, and it is said to have been one of the stones in the breastplate worn by ancient high priests. Some of the best varieties of this crystal have been found in Brazil, along with Texas, Colorado, and Utah.
Topaz is also the defining MOHS 8 mineral, and can be used for gorgeous jewelry settings or special displays. They are rare and beautiful. But you should know that my offering of these gems is limited to this listing. So enjoy, my dear collectors! ¨This listing is for one (1) piece of natural silver topaz, about .25 -.50″ in overall size, which will come gift-bagged in organza with a card describing the stone’s properties. Each piece is chosen carefully and vetted for quality. Shop with confidence.
