Topaz is an aluminium silicate fluoride hydroxide crystal. It frequently forms as crystals, often in 8-sided striated shapes, and with a diamond-shaped cross- section and a pyramidal / truncated pyramidal termination. Natural shades include blue, orange, pink, yellow, brown and colourless - be aware that clear topaz (also called silver or white topaz) can be heat-treated to create blue topaz, which is often used by the gem trade.
Topaz in general is excellent at refreshing / revealing ones connection to the Divine Plan and our life-purpose. It does this by shining the clear Light of Source upon our energy bodies, showing up blockages and obstructions that may be causing us to lose our Way, and then being quite insistent about shifting or overcoming them in an appropriate way. Not for those who don't have the courage to confront their negative patterning, but ideal if you truly want to shift and make forward progress! Topaz also assists with our cellular patterning and DNA, helping to adjust and restructure it as need be to align our physical bodies with energy changes that are occurring on the etheric level in the world around, or as we grow spiritually.
