NOVEMBER – TOPAZ
Topaz can come in a variety of colors, but the prized Imperial Topaz, adored by Russian Czars,
is orange with pink undertones. Named for an island, Topazos, in the Red Sea where the Romans
found the gem, it has come to symbolize consistency, faithfulness and friendship. Topaz is thought
to have healing properties to help breathing disorders, like asthma and tuberculosis. The topaz is
mined on nearly every continent and has been found in sizes as big as boulders in Brazil.
