One theory is that the name derives from Topasos island in the Red Sea. However there is another derivation from the Greek word 'Topazion' possibly related to to the Sanskrit word 'tapas' meaning fire.
It is a difficult stone to cut due to its cleavage, and extra care must be taken when fashioning jewellery from Topaz.
Metaphysical & Healing Properties
Blue Topaz is a 'Psychic Stone', aiding the process of accessing information through psychic abilities and opening up the clarity for 'Inner Vision'.
It is used to enhance mental abilities particularly in relation to verbal communication, mental stamina and concentration on mental tasks.
This stone is calming, emanating a peaceful vibration that is conducive to deep meditation.
It activates the creative principle and helps the user to align with their own perfected pattern of body and spirit.
As a Talisman it can be used to access one's inner strength to see a process through to its completion and can also benefit minor physical and mental ailments.
Many ancient texts mention Topaz but historically the name associated with the stone leads only to confusion, those that referred to green stones were most likely referring to what we now know as Peridot.
Nearly all Gem quality stones of Yellow, Orange or Brown colouring were described as Topazes and it's only in modern times that Topaz has been defined in any clear way.
There is a beautiful Romanov Topaz Signet now on display at the Moscow Kremlin Museum

** The Tree of Life is a popular, universal and sacred symbol that represents multiple different meanings across many cultures, religions and mystical traditions. The symbol does not belong to one specific culture as it has been used all over the world for centuries.
While it symbolises many different things, there are some common themes it represents such as:
- Interconnectedness of everything
- Immortality and Rebirth: The Tree of Life is a symbol for rebirth as trees lose their leaves and seem to be dead during winter, but then new buds appear and new, fresh leaves unfurl during the spring. It symbolises immortality because even as the tree grows old, it creates seeds that carry its essence so it lives on through new saplings.
- The tree of life diagram is used as a ‘map’ to understand more about our origins, the unknown, infinite energy, limitless light and Divine emanations beyond our mental comprehension
- Connection with Ancestry, Cosmic Origins, Family, and New Life
- Growth, strength and peace.
