Hues of Blue
This gemstone comes in a rainbow of shades, from warm tones like honey yellow and fiery orange to cool tones like icy blue and oceanic blue. Topaz is ‘pleochroic,’ which means that when observed at different angles, it will reflect different colors of light. Blue Topaz can be a light, airy baby blue akin to the sky, an intense blue like the ocean’s depths, or a shade in between.
Le Vian’s Deep Sea Blue Topaz™ is an intense and passionate shade of blue. It is dark, with radiant angles of light, and tinges of green and turquoise within its complex color. Just like it’s name, it resembles the deep sea and reminds us of the mysterious, beautiful unknown that lies beneath. Deep Sea Blue Topaz™ reminds us of where the ethereal creatures l??ike mermaids, sirens, octopi, and stingrays swim freely…
The Lore of Blue Topaz
Topaz has been a treasured gemstone for centuries. The name is believed to come from the word ‘Topazios,’ the old Greek name for an island in the Red Sea. This island, now called Zabargad, is near Egypt and has been a mining site of gemstones for hundreds of years. Today, it is popular for reef explorers and divers, and you can still find small pieces of peridot as you venture.
Throughout history and all around the world, Topaz has been revered for its many mystical qualities. The Ancient Greeks believed that Topaz gave them strength. Ancient Egyptians worshiped Topaz, which was said to hold mystical powers given by the sun god Ra During the Renaissance in Europe, people believed that Topaz could break magic spells and dissipate anger. In India, people have believed that when worn above the heart, Topaz assures beauty, intelligence, and a long life. In South America, many tribes believed that this gemstone Topaz is even mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible, showing truly how long it has been notable and cherished.
