Though Gemstones are worn for accentuating the beauty but they should always be worn after consulting an astrologer or a person who has a very good knowledge about gemstones. All stones do not suit the body type of certain individuals. They may attract negative forces sometimes. It all depends upon the birth chart of a person as far as wearing the stones are concerned.
All gems have a strong association with the planets of the earth. At the time of birth, these planets start working and continue till the last day of our lives. Not every planet bring positive effects in our lives, some of them also draws negative forces. A gemstone attracts rays from the planet and hence influences the body of an individual. Some of them even bring good luck and positive changes inside the personality of a person. They are to be worn in a right way that is in the right finger and on the right day.
Mystic Topaz, the rainbow colored gemstone is quite an attractive stone. The different shades of color in the gemstone emit sparkling rays thus creating a wonderful effect. The name of the stone is derived from an island named Topazos which is situated near the Red Sea. The stone is mostly found in the countries of Nigeria, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, Mexico and Myanmar. Brazil is one such country where majority of the stone can be found. In the ancient ages, the Greeks believed that this tone had the ability to increase strength of an individual and hence used to wear this stone. The Egyptians on the other hand, used to believe that this stone was a protector against all the evils and hence used to wear it to protect them against any kind of harm.
Since, the stone is not found in its natural form, a natural topaz is coated either with some similar metal or a thin layer of titanium oxide. The purpose of applying the coating is that it changes the natural color of the stone and creates an array of various colors that in turn produces the rainbow effect. It is then heated at a certain temperature, in order to give it the desired look. Though the mystic topaz is an artificially enhanced stone, but it gives the stone a very contemporary look.
Though the price of the gemstone is escalating at a rapid rate but the demand for the stone has not gone down. People in all countries of the world are purchasing this stone. But before purchasing a mystic topaz one should always be cautious about the price that is charged. Price of a topaz varies according to the carat size. The larger the size of the stone, the higher will be the price of the stone.
Since, Mystic Topaz is an important semi precious gemstone, one has to take care of it or else the stone might stop working. A simple wash in a mixture of water and mild soap is just the way to keep the stone working for a long time. Once the stone is cleaned properly, it should be dried with a clean towel.
