Facts for Blue Topaz

Topaz is a mineral, a silicate of aluminum and fluorine. It has to be handled with care to avoid developing flaws. Pure topaz is transparent but it is usually tinted by impurities. Often topaz is wine or straw-yellow in color. If you heat yellow topaz it often becomes reddish-pink. When a transparent gemstone is heated it becomes blue. They may also be white, gray, green, blue, pink or reddish-yellow and transparent or translucent.

Topaz is found with the more acid rocks of the granite and rhyolite type and may be found with fluorite and cassiterite. It can be found in many locations such as the Ural and Ilmen mountains, Brazil, Czech Republic, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Saxony, Sweden, and the United States.
