Communicate Clearly and Calmly

Topaz is a stone that soothes, recharges, and centers its wearer. It is associated with compassion and communication, and promotes understanding and connection between people by helping us to stay calm and express ourselves clearly in difficult or emotional situations.

Topaz: Etymology

The name topaz either comes from Topazios, the old Greek name for a small island in the Red Sea, or from Sanskrit (an ancient language of India) and the word topas or tapaz meaning “heat” or “fire.” Pliny said that Topazos is a legendary island in the Red Sea and the mineral “topaz” was first mined there, but the island, now called Zabargad, rather produced peridot.
