Topaz is the birthstone of those who are born during the month of November. Topaz, as a gemstone, comes in many shades, the most common of which are wine, yellow, pale gray, blue-brown, and reddish-orange. Sometimes, topaz appears in shades of white, pale green, blue, gold, pink (though rare), reddish-yellow, and even comes in opaque. Rare varieties include the Blue Topaz and Orange-red Imperial Topaz.
To enhance its appearance, topaz is nearly always treated. This is done with heat or sometimes with coatings. Temporary treatments are available as well as more permanent ones, and if done correctly, these beautiful gemstones last a lifetime. With its etymology deriving from the Indian Sanskrit word tapas, topaz means “fire”. Some say, though, that the name actually comes from the Island of Topazos located in the Red Sea because it was in this place that ancient Romans obtained a stone which they called “topaz,” but what was actually modern chrysolite or peridot.
As the birthstone for November, those born between the days of October 24th and November 21st also share Topaz as their birthstones, as these individuals belong to the Scorpio zodiac.
