stones: creativity and energy (topaz)

toronto-oakville-jewelry-0691Most experts agree that the name topaz comes from Topazios, the old Greek name for a small island in the Red Sea. The ancient Greeks believed that topaz gave them strength. In Europe during the Renaissance people thought that it could break magic spells and dispel anger. Today, it is the birthstone for November beauties, and is traditionally given as a 23rd wedding anniversary gift. Modern day meaning and uses for topaz include:
  • increase understanding
  • strengthen breathing
  • prevent colds
  • enhance creativity
  • bring relaxation
  • restore energy
  • aid in tissue regeneration
This beautiful stone can be delicate and requires special care. It comes in a range of colours from yellow to brown to blue (like the london blue topaz pieces above!). We have topaz pieces in both locations so come by and take a peek. xo
