Description

Add a vibrant blue color to custom jewelry designs with this oval AA-grade ice blue topaz. Use it by itself for simple earring or pendant designs or highlight its vibrant color by pairing it with contrasting-color stones in a ring or brooch for a multicolor look. One of the most popular topaz gemstones, ice-blue topaz is a light-to-medium blue that mimics a clear sky. The stone is naturally flawless in most cases. Topaz is one of the birthstones for November.

A hard, usually transparent aluminum silicate gem material, faceted topaz has a brilliance that rivals more expensive stones, making it an economical alternative to more costly gemstones. An "8" on the Mohs scale, topaz is tough and durable, ideal for all types of jewelry. Topaz forms in a orthorhombic structure with crystals that are usually prismatic. Pure topaz is colorless; impurities in the stones give them the colors they present; stones can appear in a range of colors, with natural pink being the rarest. Most topaz colors are heat-treated or irradiated to enhance their color. In folklore, this stone is believed to dispel sadness and fear, to ward off poisons and to reverse infertility.

The oval cut is an even, symmetrical shape but elongated. The arrangement of its facets is similar to that of a round brilliant, designed to maximize light and color.
