With a rainbow of colors to choose from, topaz gemstones are not the kind to let a girl down.

Topaz has had its fame in the gemstone world for sometime. You know the Mohs hardness scale that everyone likes to talk about? Well, Mohs assigned topaz an eight out of ten and made topaz one of ten stones that determine every gemstone's hardness. Pretty impressive, huh? Topaz is a durable (and attractive) gemstone.

Where did topaz get its name?

The island of Topazios, now called Zabargad, was a place known for its mines and the “topaz” it produced. Why the quotation marks? Well, Ancient Greece thought they were mining topaz. Later, science realized the stones weren't topaz, but the name stuck with the gemstones we know and love today.

The origin of the name “topaz” can also be traced back to the Sanskrit words “topas” or “tapaz.” Aka. Fire. That name doesn't shock us in the slightest. Topaz gemstones do have a certain sparkle to them, shifting colors like a dancing flame.
