Topaz is the traditional birthstone for November, both historically and currently, which it shares with Citrine. Topaz is also the gemstone for the Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (22 November – 21 December).

Topaz is an aluminium silicate fluoride hydroxide gemstone that has used in jewellery making for thousands of years. Topaz forms in various tones and saturations of yellow, gold, orange, red, blue, green, purple and brown, as well as colourless. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may cause the colour of some Topaz gemstones to fade.

Over the centuries Topaz has been associated with opulence and luxury, influence and generosity, vibrancy and strength. It is said that possessing a Topaz brings true love and fidelity, friendship, and a gentle nature, as well as bestowing the gifts of courage and wisdom, and success in all endeavours. Topaz is also considered to be one of the most loving, beneficial gems one can gift to oneself!
