Stone of the Month
The birthstone for December is Blue Topaz. The name derives from the Sanskrit word "tapas," meaning fire. Despite the name, ancient civilizations considered the topaz to have cooling properties that could both protect from boiling water and calm hot tempers! Many other healing powers were credited to this gemstone, among those the ability to cure insanity, asthma, weak vision, and insomnia. The magical properties of the Blue Topaz went so far as to even make the wearer invisible to threatening situations!
Blue Topaz is the hardest of the silicate minerals. While pure Topaz is colorless, minor changes of elements within the stone result in a variety of other colors, such as blue, pale green, red, yellow, and pink.
A gift of Blue Topaz is symbolic of love and fidelity.
