Faithfulness 
  
The name topaz is most likely derived form the old Sanskrit
word topaz (fire). There is a common misconception that all 
topaz is yellow. Pure topaz is colorless, but this well-loved
gem occurs in a broad range of colors: yellow, brown, pink, 
red, blue, and green. We offer few types of quality blue topaz
in a wide range of shades. 

Although very hard, topaz is also brittle, and can shatter 
with a single blow. Lore: Ancient Greeks called topaz the 
"Stone of Strength." During medieval times, topaz was thought 
to heal both physical and mental disorders and prevent death.
