Origin of Name & Mythology: Imperial Topaz is also known as gold, or yellow topaz, and sometimes “chrysolite” in older texts, such as the Old Testament. There are early references to the mining and use of topaz in Ancient Egypt, where it was considered to be a stone of the sun, and believed to confer protection against dark spells and evil spirits.
Imperial Topaz aligns with the Solar Plexus and Sacral Chakras, the upper and lower centres of our life force (Prana or Chi). It encourages self-realisation and strengthens self-confidence as well as fortifying the nervous system and activating Chi. Precious topaz is warming and revitalising, filling the body with golden light, and assisting us in recognising our abilities, as well as instilling drive, motivation, ambition, and creativity. The beautiful, warm colour will help to alleviate sadness and depression. Topaz can be used to support the filter organs, such as liver and kidneys.
