For thousands of years the mere mention of Topaz has conjured thoughts of opulence and luxury, influence and generosity, vibrancy and strength. To possess one brings true love and fidelity, friendship, and a gentle nature, bestowing the gifts of courage and wisdom, and success in all endeavors. Its energy, harnessed from the sun, transcends both time and space, and is one of the most loving, beneficial crystals one can gift to the Self. [Melody En, 799][101 Hall, 206]
From the pure light of clear Topaz, to the gold and sunny yellows, to the fiery pink-red varieties, Topaz warms to its solar energy, diffusing and radiating its gentle power in all directions…soothing, healing, stimulating and recharging. It brings solid, lasting energy, joy, generosity and abundance. Blue Topaz draws its solar influence from the entire sky, where strength and vitality become inspiration, breath and momentum. It promotes truth and forgiveness, expression, and the confidence to fulfill one’s aspirations. Topaz is also considered to have lunar connections, its color and power waxing and waning in union with the moon’s cycle. [Megemont, 180][Hall, 292-293][101 Hall, 206][Eason, 104]
Topaz is more than an enhancement stone, it is regarded as the “crystal of potency,” with ends and facets (and those which have been faceted) that produce both positive and negative currents. It differs from the energy of Quartz in the way its alternating currents are linked and broadcast via the ethers to the forces of attraction and manifestation. A request to the Universe focused through this gem brings an intense clarify to one’s intention and increases the focus of one’s thoughts, energy and actions in order to manifest one’s desires into physical reality. Topaz is highly effective for affirmations and visualization, meditation and projection, and is an excellent talisman for discerning Divine wisdom and connecting to the heavenly realm. [Melody En, 799][Hall, 292-293][Simmons, 403]

Clear/White/Silver Topaz - embodies the energy of the spirit and opens one’s senses to the essence of the Self. It brings an awareness of one’s thoughts and deeds and the karmic effect these have, as well as a cosmic awareness and understanding of the “big “picture” and how one fits into it all. Stimulating the Crown and etheric chakras, this high-vibrational crystal dissolves mental attachments and purifies emotions, helping to heal the soul. It enhances spiritual development, and works to clarify one’s intention and align it with Divine Will in order to manifest it in the physical world.
