A gorgeous honey-hued Imperial Topaz mined from the upper regions of the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan. The raw gem has a well developed crystal termination and sparkling luster. Throughout ancient cultures, Topaz has been associated with the life-giving force of the sun. It’s theorized that the name Topaz originates from the Sanskrit word ‘Tapa’ which means ‘heat’, or alternatively ‘sun’ and ‘burning’. The Egyptians associated Topaz with the sun god, Ra, the chief deity that gives life and and vitality to the earthly realms.
