November: Topaz

Topaz

Your horoscope can often subscribe to plenty of personal characteristics. For some, it can provide insight as to their inner selves and subconscious needs and wants. For others, it’s a way to rationalize sending that risky text message, or buying a brand new couch.

However, with all the waxing poetic to be had in Capricorn moons and Leo suns, some would prefer a more concrete, tangible method of finding themselves.

Some would say Birthstones are the literal crystallization of the months in a year. Originating from the bible, In Exodus 28, Moses creates a special breastplate for Aaron, the High Priest of the Hebrews. Specifically, the breastplate was to contain twelve precious gemstones, representing the twelve tribes of Israel. These twelve stones were later assigned to the Zodiac, and as a result, became symbolic for all twelve months, respectively.

You could name your zodiac and horoscope, and the features that come with the assignment, but every birthstone possesses unique traits and personality themselves. Have you ever asked yourself if you’re as steadfast as a ruby? Or as richly reflective as a diamond? Let’s find out!

Topaz, thought to be related to the ancient Sanskrit word “tapas”, meaning “fire”, is a dense, semi-precious stone which can be found all over the word. Though Topaz’ official discovery dates back to 1730s Germany, there are mentions of the gemstone in numerous Ancient Egyptian and Ancient Roman records, detailing its properties and proposed abilities including: the manifestation of the Sun God Ra’s divine power to protect the wearer, and the neutralization or alert of poisons, respectively.

Like most semi-precious stones, Topaz occurs in a variety of colours, some more desirable than others. Rich pinks, reds and orange shades of Topaz are known as “precious topaz” or “imperial topaz”, and are the most valuable variation. However, in terms of rarity, blue Topaz is the front runner. Though it appears commercially substantial, the colour of those stones is actually produced from an irradiation treatment. Naturally occurring deep blue Topaz is extremely uncommon and dazzling.

Other available colours of Topaz include brown, white, mystic and yellow, as seen here in this 23.32 Carat Golden Yellow Brazilian Topaz & Canadian Diamond Oval Halo Pendant in 14K White Gold.

A symbol of strength and honor, the Ancient Greeks believed wearing Topaz would render the bearer invisible. It is also thought to attract wealth, and good fortune, as well as cure arthritis pain, improve digestion, aid in weight loss, and attract love.

If Topaz is your birthstone, you’ve got a warm disposition, and a generally bright countenance. You avoid conflict and danger skillfully, and those who know you know they can count on you having a plan should things get dicey. You’re always aware of where you are and where you need to go, and your keen sense of rational suspicion has come in clutch more times than you can count. It’s very, very difficult to pull one over on you, your contingencies are the stuff of legends. You’re also a nightmare for scammers, and you DIY like a deity.
