Good morning everyone! I've been busy as a bee getting ready for a craft show I'm going to next Saturday. But I wanted to do this treasury before it got too late in the month. Last month I totally forgot to post the birthstone treasury until, well, this month! So even though this is a treasury of the November birthstone of Topaz, I'm also going to take this opportunity to say happy birthday to everyone born in October as well!
Pure topaz is actually colorless, it is the other chemicals found with it that give it its many colors. The kind know as orange (or yellow) topaz, which is the color we most think of when we hear the word topaz is the birthstone for November. It is a symbol of friendship, and its name comes from the Sanskrit word and meaning fire. So to all my friends and family who's birthdays are in November (and October) hope you have a very Happy Birthday! Enjoy! :)
And make sure you check out the big treasury for even more beautiful topaz pieces!
Have a great day! :)
