Caribbean Topaz: The Lure of the Island


 
Fashion & Cosmetics
Azotic Coating Technology, Inc. introduced the Caribbean topaz to the jewelry world in 1998. Also known as mystic fire or Bermuda topaz, this granddaddy of designer gemstones is created by applying a thin layer of titanium to the underside of the gemstone.

What this coating does is change the refractive light properties which produces a burst of multi-colored brilliance. Various shades of blue and green make this a cool gem. Its hues certainly are reminiscent of the islands.

It doesn't really come from the Caribbean

Natural topaz is found all over the world from Asia to the United States. But, the primary supplier of this gemstone is Brazil. Pakistan, China, Myanmar, Russia, Madagascar and Mexico are just some of the other locations that contain mine deposits. So, the stones in that Caribbean topaz pendant likely came from Brazil, but could have come from anywhere.

Special occasions

While it is officially yellow topaz that is the birthstone for November, any color variety can technically be used because they all share the same properties. That being said, a Caribbean topaz and diamond bracelet makes for a unique and surprising birthday gift for the girl who loves her sparkly accessories. Of course, there doesn't have to be a special occasion for this gemstone.

Magical properties and other benefits

The topaz has been a popular gem for thousands of years and, as a result, there are special properties attached to it. One such property is the power of invisibility when the body is threatened… not likely, but it is fun to imagine. Medicinally, a ground up gemstone sprinkled into wine was used to cure the effects of asthma and improve eyesight.

A Caribbean topaz ring just might expose poison in food and drink. This gemstone must have been very popular among royalty and dictators! It is also believed to improve mood, improve fertility and have an overall calming effect on the body.

How to take care of Caribbean topaz jewelry

Made up of aluminum fluoride silicate, the topaz is a durable stone with a rank of 8 on the Mohs scale of hardness. This usually means that maintenance is simple, but because of the thin layer of titanium coating the underside, more care should be taken when cleaning. Stay away from harsh chemicals and stick with a gentle soap and warm water or an ammonium-based solution. Also, never use abrasives on this gemstone and the ultrasonic cleaner is not recommended.

If the titanium coating gets scratched, the light refraction is interrupted and the rainbow of colors is compromised. So, be very careful when cleaning Caribbean topaz earrings and other pieces. Because the underside is fairly well protected by the setting and the untreated top is quite hard, it is ok to wear this gemstone every day.

Designer gems like Caribbean topaz jewelry offer a unique way for women to accessorize. Because it can be found in earrings, pendants, bracelets and necklaces, she can enjoy a variety of looks. She can even add some diamonds for a dressier accessory. Whether it is set in gold or silver, it makes the perfect accent to any outfit.

Caribbean topaz jewelry makes for a unique and surprising birthday gift for the girl who loves her sparkly accessories. Shop for unique topaz rings, earrings, bracelets and pendants in gold or silver at http://www.gemaffair.com
