November birthdays are associated with two gems: one of them being topaz, which is a symbol of love and affection. The stone’s name may originate from the Greek word topazos, which means “to seek”. However, some scholars trace the origin of the stone’s name to the word topas, which means “fire” in an ancient language of India.
Topaz occurs in a wide range of colors, including blue, red, yellow, green, pink, and violet. It is a pleochloric gemstone, which means it can exhibit multiple colors when viewed at different angles. For example, a red topaz gemstone can reflect shades of dark red, yellow, and pink-ish red. A fairly common gemstone, topaz can be found in large and flawless crystals, which can be faceted into stones that weigh thousands of carats.
Topaz gemstones offer an energy that is soothing, healing, stimulating, and recharging. The gem is also considered to have lunar connections, with its color and energy waxing and waning in unison with the moon’s cycle. By directing its energy to the throat chakra, the stone will aid you in clear communication of your emotions.
