Topaz comes in nearly every color, but is perhaps best known for its yellow, orange, and blue specimens. The blue topaz-Sky, Swiss, and London varieties in particular-are very popular in jewelry today, and all of the blue-colored topaz is treated to enhance or create its blue color. While topaz is a relatively hard stone, rated 8 on the Mohs scale, it is not tough. Very light blows can break topaz. Steam and ultrasonic cleaning should be avoided. Topaz is found in Brazil, Nigeria, the U.S., Pakistan, Russia, and Mexico. Advise customers to avoid rough handling and sudden temperature changes.
