What makes topaz so unique?
Topaz is remarkable for a few reasons.
Chemically, topaz is an aluminum silicate mineral, which means its molecules contain aluminum. It’s also the hardest silicate mineral and the third-hardest mineral after diamond and corundum.
You can find topaz on every continent, and it’s been mined in places as different as Australia, Japan, Pakistan, Brazil, and the United States. In fact, orange topaz is the state mineral of Utah, and blue topaz is Texas’s state gemstone.
But topaz jewelry is for more than just November babies!
Yellow topaz is the zodiac birthstone for Scorpio (October 24 to November 22), and blue topaz represents Sagittarius (November 23 to December 20).
It’s also associated with birth weekdays. If you were born on a Friday, you’re associated with the planet Venus and white topaz. If your birthday was a Sunday, you’re associated with the sun and yellow topaz.
