About Topaz Stone
The topaz stone is indeed a very underrated gem. Orange topaz represents the state gemstone of Utah, serves as the traditional November birthstone, and symbolizes friendship, while blue topaz stands as the state gemstone of Texas. You don't have to be from Utah or Texas or be born in November, though, to collect topaz stones, because anyone who appreciates the rich colors that topaz renders can own these gems. The prismatic crystal structure of a topaz stone lends itself quite nicely to faceting, as finished stones often display brilliant iridescence, yet topaz occurs in abundance on all six inhabited continents, making it inexpensive despite its splendid visual qualities. On eBay, sellers offer a broad selection of both loose topaz stones and jewelry that features natural topaz stones of various colors. You can choose from new artisan-created pieces, or you can collect stones to put into jewelry you make yourself. Whichever option you choose, your topaz stones are sure to catch an eye or two.
