Topaz, the birthstone of November, has evolved in such a way that people would not have expected. Scientists found a way to enhance a true blue (okay, not literally) topaz into a kaleidoscope of color when the sun hits it. In nature, topaz is common found colorless, a crystal clear sort of colorless. Other instances of topaz that occur in nature but are significantly rarer are pink, golden, orange, purple, and red. Most topaz are lab created to obtain that stunning color you know and love.
