The Stone of Strength

Topaz has been worn by cultures around the world since ancient times, each giving it a unique gemstone meaning. The Greeks believed that it endowed the wearer with strength, while in India, topaz was used to help assure long life. During the Renaissance, topaz was also believed to have magical properties and the ability to break spells.

Blue Topaz's Birthstone History

Traditionally, the birthstones for December were opaque gems like lapis lazuli and turquoise. In modern times, a shift to transparent gems made blue topaz an exquisite alternative. Tanzanite was also added to the December birthstone list in 2002.

A Symbol of Power and Positivity

An energetically powerful stone, blue topaz helps alleviate sadness, dispel anger and promote healing. Wearing your blue topaz birthstone is also thought to increase inner strength, cultivate the intellect and enhance creativity. The birthstone symbolism of this marvelously blue stone represents love, beauty and wisdom as well.
