The Precious Gemstone Pink Topaz

Posted by Carla Grimaldi on

Pink Topaz

Topaz is a silicate mineral of fluorine and aluminum, with prismatic crystals mostly terminated by pyramidal faces. Pure topaz is colorless and transparent but is usually colored by impurities. Common topaz is wine red, yellow, pale gray, reddish-orange, or blue brown; but it can also be white, pale green, blue, gold, pink, reddish-yellow or opaque to transparent/translucent. Pink Topaz is among the rarest tints of topaz in existence, and this is the one we are going talk.

Topaz is a very versatile material. Therefore it can be cut into a great variety of shapes, such as square, round, octagon, pear, oval, heart and even fancy shapes that can be considered as miniature sculptures. Topaz is allochromatic, which means that its color is caused by impurity elements or defects in its crystal structure rather than by an element of its basic chemical composition. The element chromium causes natural pink to happen. Pink Topaz has an orthorhombic crystal system and a hardness rate of 8.0 mohs.
