A bit if the History of Topaz Gemstones and Topaz Rough
Most experts agree that the old name Topazios comes from the name of a small island in the Red Sea now called Zabargad. This island never produced Topaz but produced Peridot Gemstone which was confused with Topaz before modern Minerology. Scholars also trace the Topaz name back to Sanskrit as topas or tapaz.
Ancient Greeks believed that Topaz would give them strength and during the Renaissance era in Europe, the people wore Topaz to break magic spells and dispel anger. In India for centuries it has been believed that the Topaz Gemstones worn above the heart assures beauty , long life and intelligence.
In the 19th century, the name Imperial Topaz was given in Russia to the beautiful Pink Topaz mined from the Ural Mountains and in honor of the Czar. Ownership was then restricted to only Royal Family members.
Topaz is also one of the two Birthstones for the month of November (the other is Citrine).
