It's just this sparkle that only Topaz has.
This precious stone has been used in jewellery for centuries, used in amulets of power and influence.
Its rarity has meant that it has become associated with glory and success.
Its name stems from the old language Sanskrit, meaning 'Fire'. Topaz has a wide range of colours, red, orange, peach, pink, gold, yellow, brown and totally clear.
Among the names for the various shades of blue are Sky Blue, Swiss Blue and London Blue.
The lightest of these shades is Sky Blue Topaz, which resembles a watery summer sky, and darkest is the velvety blue of London Blue.
The ancient Egyptians believed that the colour of Topaz is owed to the golden glow of their mighty Sun-God 'Ra' and Adornments containing a Topaz were considered to be powerful amulets against harm.
In addition to that the ancient Greek believed, this gem possessed the power to increase strength.
Today Topaz is used to treat insomnia, it stimulates blood circulation and increases appetite.
Probably the most famous Topaz is a colourless, clear one that originally was long thought to be a Diamond.
It is a 1680-carat stone known as the 'Braganca Diamond' that is set in the Portuguese Crown Jewels.
Topaz is one of the two birthstone of November.
The other one is the Citrine.
