The name “topaz” comes from the Latin Topazus, which originally comes from Sanskrit tapas meaning fire. It was exported from ancient Sri Lanka to ancient Greece and Egypt. It was highly valued by these civilisations as well as the Romans. Topaz is mentioned numerous times in European Middle-age literature.
Topaz is a true expression of fire energy, its golden colour is the same as the sun’s light, and energy is considered warm, glowing, and bright. Its energy is that of sunshine.

It helps with both physical and mental blockages, and although it has fiery energy it warm, relaxed, glowing nature is soothing and balances and clams emotions. It helps facilitate friendship, faithfulness, and loyalty between people. It attracts joy and happiness and helps transformation.
This crystal is shaped in accordance with the “hexagonal system” law of nature. This means things in nature have a great propensity to form in hexagonal shapes, including beehives, carbon atoms in organic molecules, and basalt columns. Many crystals are packed together at the molecular level in hexagons. This means they naturally form into hexagonal shapes just as in the basalt columns of the Giant’s Causeway Ireland. Healing crystals in this form have focused and concentrated energy.
