It's hard to miss Blue Topaz; its light blue colour truly shines across a room. This is perhaps why our Blue Topaz earrings have become some of our most popular items. So what do you need to know when looking into purchasing a pair?
A semi-precious gemstone from the Topaz mineral family, blue Topaz comes in a variety of different colours. From sky blue to a dark, inky hue, you can truly find a blue Topaz stone that suits your style.
Topaz is of natural abundance and is available at most jewellers. It is naturally colourless, but this doesn’t mean it has a short supply of options. Topaz has an exceptionally wide colour range, both naturally and due to treatments.
Saturations of blue, green, yellow, red, pink and purple can all be found in Topaz gemstones, all of which offer something unique.
Colourless Topaz is most often treated to turn it blue, as this hue is a natural rarity. Most believe that orange-yellow or red stones are the most valuable, although this is a subjective opinion.
About Blue Topaz
The Blue Topaz gemstone is a silicate mineral of aluminium and fluorine. Its irradiation is what gives it its distinctive blue hue. You might normally expect Topaz to come in a more brown-golden colour, which is why the colour of Blue Topaz is seen as such a stark change from the norm.
This stone is easily made and mostly inexpensive, which is another of the reasons it is so popular. Despite its relative lack or rarity, though, its particular colour profile never goes out of fashion.
As you might expect, colour is the hallmark of this gemstone, and almost entirely dictates its price. However, its clarity does have some part to play in dictating its true quality.
As a rule, most Topaz is 'eye clean' (meaning that no imperfections can be detected through eyesight alone). After a gem has been identified as eye clean, its quality is based on the imperfections that can be seen under magnification. As you might expect, the fewer impurities that can be seen under magnification, the higher quality the Topaz stone is.
