Brazilian Topaz Gems
Brazil is an important source for various gem types, including topaz, emerald and quartz gemstones. Topaz of any type is an important jewelry stone due to its hardness (8 on the Mohs scale) and high refractive index. Topaz comes in many colors, including clear, brown, yellow, orange, red, pink and blue. Blue topaz is one of the all time top selling gemstones. It is beautiful and affordable in large sizes, making it a perfect statement stone. Blue topaz is available in many shades of blue, such as light sky blue, bright Swiss blue and darker London blue. Like many gemstones today, the beautiful blue shades of topaz are achieved by an artificial irradiation and enhancement process. Blue topaz is one of December's official birthstones and the 4th wedding anniversary stone. The fine golden-yellow to reddish-orange variety, known as imperial topaz, is relatively scarce and valuable.
Topaz comes from many areas of the world and one of the best-known sources of topaz gemstones is Minas Gerais in Brazil, where many large topaz crystals are found.
