Imperial Topaz

Imperial Topaz is the most desirable Topaz. Its name comes from “Czar Topaz”, as it was first discovered in Russia and only the emperor (czar) could wear it as a symbol of his nobility and power. In the past, all yellow and brownish gems were called Topaz. Its golden color is not a result of heating enhancement or any other treatment. For centuries people in India believed that wearing an Imperial Topaz on the chest would guarantee long life, beauty and intelligence. It was also found in Pakistan and Brazil, but nowadays the largest production comes from Dom Bosco, Rodrigo Silva and Saramenha, districts of Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais, Brazil. This region has been producing since 1735. Due to its rarity, this gem’s price has been increasing steadily in the last few years.
