Topaz is an aluminum silicate which usually forms from fluorine bearing vapors present during the final stages of crystalization in some igneous rocks. Topaz is frequently found in vugs (open cavities) in rhyolitic lavas, and also in some granitic pegmatites where it commonly occurs with quartz, feldspar and mica. Natural topaz is usually colorless, however it can occur naturally with many different colors including yellow, orange, pink and blue. The rarest of the naturally occuring colors in topaz are in shades of orange-pink which are commonly known as Imperial Topaz. Imperial Topaz is found today at just a few locations around the world, the most famous of which is at Ouro Preto, Brazil. We specialize in unheated and untreated real topaz that was mined in the earth with 100% natural color! Right now, we are offering natural color raw topaz in all qualities including some very rare size large topaz crystals!

We specialize in Natural Color Topaz Crystals:
Topaz commonly occurs in nature as colorless crystals. Very rarely, topaz can occur naturally with light to medium blue color - see our natural color blue topaz mineral specimens for some examples. Under very rare conditions topaz can also occur naturally with yellow/orange/pink/red/violet hues, and these are known as imperial topaz.
Be sure to see our page displaying Imperial Topaz Crystals in a variety of sizes and all natural colors ranging from golden-orange to orange-red.
Topaz is a very durable mineral with a hardness of 8 on Moh's hardness scale. Due to its high hardness, we usually mine topaz in alluvial geologic settings where the more durable minerals have been concentrated by erosion and watershed.
Topaz commonly forms as euhedral prismatic crystals with vitreous luster terminated by dipyramids with first and second order prisms and with basal pinacoids. Topaz crystals frequently show vertical striations on the prismatic faces and they rarely show twinning. Topaz also occurs naturally in crystalline masses.
Topaz crystal terminations sometimes show very unique and interesting naturally etched surfaces.
Topaz is an aluminum fluorosilicate:
Topaz crystals form commonly from fluorine bearing gases given off during the later stages of crystallization in acidic igneous rocks, occuring in cavities and fissures within rhyolites and granites. Topaz also occurs in granitic pegmatites where it is commonly associated with quartz, albite, microcline, clevelandite, and muscovite. Topaz crystals are also found occasionally occuring in pegmatites together with tourmaline, aquamarine, kunzite and apatite.
Topaz also occurs in metamorphic rocks by fluorine metasomatism in greisens and quartzites associated with fluorite, zinnwaldite mica, corundum and rutile. It also occurs (rarely) in schists.
Topaz appears in hypothermal ore deposits associated with cassiterite, hematite, wolframite and gold. In Addition, due to topaz's hardness, topaz crystals are often found in eluvial and alluvial deposits.
Topaz is said to aid in meditation and in the manifestation of the desired outcome.
Topaz crystals are also said to enhance one's spiritual potential, to increase intelligence and creativity, and to impart wisdom (and wealth!). It is said to facilitate working with other minerals, enhancing the results. Topaz is said to be a strong healing and rejuvenating mineral, giving new vitality and good health, and protection against many diseases. In addition to the above metaphysical properties for topaz, Blue topaz is said to enhance one's communicative abilities, helping to more easily and clearly express oneself.
