The beauty of the topaz has been admired for centuries. Although the most commonly found color is yellow; this gorgeous gemstone also comes in shades of golden-brown, blue, light blue, red, pink, colorless and green. It is a very hard gemstone, ranking an 8 on the Moh’s scale of hardness and making it a perfect gemstone for everyday wear. One of the largest deposits of topaz can be found in a large German rock called the Schneckenstein in Saxony. It was first uncovered in the 18th century and was mined there for over 60 years. Although this deposit unearthed a plentiful amount of topaz, the actual topaz crystals were relatively small. Miners that were searching for the topaz had to travel to Siberia or Brazil to find crystals the size of a human fist. Topaz can also be found in the United States, Mexico, Italy, Sweden, Czech Republic, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Russia and Japan.
