While we generally consider topaz to be a yellow stone, pure topaz is completely colorless with fire that rivals the diamond for beauty.
Mined on nearly every continent, the best specimens of clear white topaz are found in South America. Clear topaz is relatively abundant, and it’s not uncommon to find pieces that are clean to the naked eye. Prices for precious topaz are low in comparison to many other precious gems, making it an attractive, affordable alternative for April birthstones.
Legend says that topaz dispels enchantment. The ancient Greeks believed that topaz has the power to increase strength and make its wearer invisible in times of emergency. Topaz was also said to change color in the presence of poisoned food or drink.
Choosing a piece of white topaz jewelry is not only a great alternative to diamond jewelry but also is much more affordable for the same look.
