Mystic fire topaz, sea mist topaz and other created topaz stones are a recent craze. These engineered gemstones are brilliant combinations of colors, combined in such a way that people who see topaz rings in action want to know where it was purchased. Not only are these created rings gorgeous, but they’re affordable. It just makes sense that they’re so incredibly popular.
What to look for in a mystic fire topaz ring: Check that the coating on the outside of the stone is in tact, properly secured by the prongs, and unscratched. Make sure the color is brilliant by going out into the sun and examining it carefully.
How to care for mystic fire topaz: Mystic fire topaz should be placed away in a secure, room temperature place like a jewelry box with felt lining, limiting contact with other jewelry. Never wear mystic fire topaz in any high impact activities, gardening, moving furniture, or any type of activity that would risk the jewelry being damaged in any way. Clean the ring once a week to remove soap, hand oil, and body oil residue with a clean cloth and cleaning solution; buff to avoid water spots. Do not use an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner, which will damage the treated surface of mystic fire topaz.
One of the most unusual gemstones around is the opal with its opulent iridescence and flash of colors. Because of how they form, each stone is completely unique. Play of color- the flash- is a determining factor for quality in most varieties. However, the fire opal is more desired simply for its reds, oranges and yellows. The name itself comes from these colors as opposed to the fire and flash from play of color. A fire opal pendant may or many not have play of color, but if the colors are bright and hot, it is a desired stone.
Significant deposits of this stone come from Mexico. Because it has long been an important part of the Mexican culture, it is the national gemstone for the country. Another special designation is the birthstone for October. A fire opal can heat up any birthday celebration. But, it is also a sexy and exciting gift to celebrate a 14th wedding anniversary.
It is important to take care of these delicate stones by cleaning with care and storing them separate from harder pieces of jewelry. If a fire opal bracelet is reserved for special occasions, it will hold up over the years so it can be passed down for generations to come.
