Topaz comes in a variety of colors including yellow, brown, honey, green, blue, red, pink and sometimes no color at all. The most rare and valuable colors called Imperial Topaz are natural pink, sherry red, and fine golden orange. Blue topaz is the most affordable because it is readily available. Colorless topaz is routinely heated and irradiated to produce blue, red or green colors. Topaz in yellow and orange is occasionally irradiated to intensify color. Brown topaz is not commonly enhanced.
The Egyptians said that topaz was colored with the golden glow of the sun god. Legend has it that topaz dispels all enchantment and helps to improve eyesight. Topaz is thought to fuel matters of the heart, inspire courage, increase intuition, and sharpen wit.
