White Colorless Topaz
White or colorless topaz is an affordable gemstone for those looking for durability and beauty combined. Most of the white topaz gems available today are mined from Minas Gerais (Brazil), but deposits are also commercially mined from Afghanistan, Australia, Myanmar (Burma), China, Germany, Japan, Madagascar, Mexico, Namibia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka (Ceylon), Ukraine and the USA.
White topaz has a hardness of 8 on the Mohs scale, which makes it tough and resistant to most scratches, but its perfect cleavage does make it fragile in regard to fractures or splits. Topaz in its purest form is completely colorless and exhibits excellent transparency with an attractive vitreous (glass-like) luster. It serves as an excellent natural substitute for white diamond, although it can be difficult to find small precision-cut gemstones.

Well I was looking for the perfect stone to set in a ring for my partner. I found this Garnet on a website called Gemselect and it captured my eye. I had to have it for her. It looked as perfect as she does. I got the stone I wanted for $150 shipped straight to me. It’ll be the perfect Christmas present
Working on a special anniversary gem collection for my wife, and was able to find almost everything on this one site. Having bought from yall before, this was a no-brainer on where to go for the right stones/buying experience.
