Crystal of the Week: Topaz

Topaz comes from the word “topazin” meaning “to seek.”  Known as the “Stone of True Love,” Topaz will help you seek and find love.  It’s a joyful stone that balances emotions and helps the wearer see the bigger picture.

Topaz is said to possess its own inner light and the stone will work to share this light with the wearer.  It imparts feelings of joy, empathy and generosity.  It’s a mellow, calming stone that will encourage forgiveness and acceptance. 

Topaz has a long and rich history for treating ailments and bringing good fortune.  St. Hildegard used Topaz dipped in wine to treat eye disorders.  Doctors also used Topaz elixirs during the Plague.  This beautiful stone has long been associated with the wealthy who would often wear topaz engraved with a falcon to attract more financial abundance. 

These days, Topaz is known to help to balance your emotions and open your heart to love and happiness.

If you’re trying to complete a goal and are finding it difficult to find the energy and self-esteem to see it to fruition, wearing Topaz will give you the motivation and inner resources to achieve your goal with success and speed.

While Topaz comes in a variety of hues, the two most popular and easy to find are yellow and blue.
