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.
Blue Topaz Earrings – Blue and green are the rarest kind of topaz, an enhanced kind of topaz to achieve that bright unbeatable blue and green color. Sub categories for blue topaz are London Blue and Swiss Blue.
Golden Topaz / Imperial Topaz Earrings – Not to be confused with Madeira topaz, is the second most commonly found variety of Topaz.
Mystic Fire Topaz Earrings – This kind of topaz is probably the topaz we are the best well known for. GEMaffair is a leader in the industry of mystic fire topaz. Mystic fire is lab created, first introduced in Hong Kong in 1998. This category encompasses all the other types of created topaz (sea mist topaz, Neptune fire topaz, etc).
Pink Topaz Earrings – Definitely a crowd pleaser when it comes to women, always pretty in pink.
Smokey Topaz / Champagne Topaz Earrings – Smokey topaz is the same as smokey quartz. Originally, experts believe that topaz and quartz were the same stone. However, upon careful inspection with top of the line equipment it was determined that the two contained different molecular structures. This type of topaz/quartz is extremely popular due to its lovely fall coloring, and the ability to wear it with a variety of styles.
White Topaz Earrings Untreated Topaz – This is the most natural kind of topaz there is. It’s also one of the reasons it’s so popular. Clear is easy to temper with to create brilliant, lovely colors like that which can be seen in mystic fire topaz.
Mystic fire topaz earrings look like wildfire in your earlobes, sparkling in a brilliant array of colors, not to be confused with the hard rock band Mystic Fire. Mystic fire can attribute its lovely, one-of-a-kind look to a new patented Azotic coating through physical vapor deposition of titanium and pavilion on a clear colored topaz. This coating does not in any way alter the genetic makeup of the original topaz, simply gives it a new radiating splash of color. Mystic fire topaz earrings are great accessories for Christmas parties due to the array of colors that play through the treated gemstone. The stone is cut in a variety of shapes, so there are so many mystic fire topaz earrings to pick from hearts, circles, ovals, rectangles, etc.
