History and Uses
There are differing ideas about the origin of the name Topaz. Some believe it is named after the island of Topazios, now called Zabargad, in the Red Sea where Chrysolite was mined. The ancient Greeks named the island, which means “to seek”, possibly because it was difficult to find in the mists. Others believe the name comes from the ancient Indian Sanskrit word tapas meaning fire, referring to the golden color of the Imperial Topaz.
This crystal comes in a range of colors including colorless (white) to yellow, orange, red-brown, light to dark blue, pink to red, violet, and light green. Ancient Egyptians and Romans associated Golden or Imperial Topaz with the sun god because of its color. Ancient Greeks believed it could increase men’s strength and virility. In ancient Indian tradition, it was believed to activate the throat chakra, enhancing self-expression.
