Meaning and Symbolism
Blue Topaz is the December birthstone. There are many emotional benefits attributed to the aqua-turquoise color stone, from calming tempers to enhancing confidence and understanding of others. Giving this gemstone as a gift is a sign of eternal love, harmony and fidelity. Blue topaz is thought to improve communication skills in both listening and sharing.
Origin and History
The name topaz is derived from the ancient Sanskrit “tapas” meaning fire, heat and passion. However, throughout history the stone had been thought to have cooling properties. Blue topaz is a silicate, one of the hardest materials known to man. There are three varieties of blue topaz: sky blue, London blue, and Swiss blue. The color variations are created by heat treating white or pale blue topaz.
Fun Facts about Blue Topaz
Blue topaz was named the official state gem of Texas in 1969 after a deposit of the stone was found in the state. The gemstone has been found in large quantities in Russia, Germany, the Czech Republic, Brazil, and Mexico as well. Blue topaz is thought to bring leadership ability to anyone who wears it, giving them increased insight and communication abilities.

Top Customer Reviews
The back of the bale is marked "China 925" with a jeweler's mark; the bale is fairly large, will come off the necklace and would go on another chain very easily. The reason this is important is because in my opinion the pendant is somewhat too heavy for the chain. The necklace is marked "925 Italy" with the same jeweler's mark; the box chain is very fine, and I intend to wear it separate from the pendant or with a lighter pendant.
As to the gemstone colors, the garnets are darkest, with a lovely reddish brown hue. The citrines have a true golden shine. The peridots, my birthstone, are a disappointment in that they are a pale lime green. The amethyst look light purple under the loup, but looking at them straight on, they have pink tones, resembling tourmaline. The blue topaz are washed out to the point that they are almost unnoticeable and remind me of aquamarine.
What drove my rating down from a three to a two was the price. Taking into account the flimsy chain and gemstone colors, plus what I have seen in stores, I personally think that this piece is worth more like $25, not the current price of $54.
I think this would be the perfect gift for someone who likes smaller jewelry with a dainty look. Perhaps a new high school graduate or a grandparent's Christmas present etc. I think that for the small size and flimsy chain, it's more worth maybe $30 at most. The entire pendant itself fits perfectly onto a nickel. Would be best worn outside a turtleneck perhaps, to raise it up and show it off a little.
