How to Clean & Care for Topaz

The Utah State Official Gemstone is Resistant to Scratching & Stunningly Beautiful!

Topaz is the official birthstone for the month of November and is known for its breath taking color and strong wear-ability. Topaz is accompanied by rich folklore; according to utah.gov, the ancient Greeks believed the wearer of topaz could become invisible when in danger. Topaz’s color, although naturally close to clear, can be enhanced by heat, which accounts for pink, yellow, and orange. Other treatments such as radiation can account for blue topaz, which has become a more popular choice for jewelry collectors. Although topaz is a strong material that shows great resistance to scratching, it can experience cracks from heavy blows or sudden temperature change.
