Yellow Topaz and gemstone healing properties

When considering the energetic aspects of gemstones, it is more important to first consider the aspects of one’s personality or total “state of being”, and then look at the gemstone properties that most relate.
More than just basing one’s choice on birthday or favorite colors, the idea is to find the gemstone that is most appropriate and that would be of most benefit to the total “vibratory pattern” of the person. They can help strengthen and guide the individual along the right path, by enhancing more than changing things with energetic influences.

Certain stones can influence specific physical or mental conditions.
For example,  http://otakuyume.angelfire.com mentions these stone properties as they relate to :

General protection—beryl, lapis ligurius
Protection from colds—carbon steel
Prevention of personal anger—opal, pearl, amethyst
Influencing the mental choice-bloodstone, sard onyx
Strengthening abilities during exertion—agate, amethyst
Strengthening the body—lapis lazuli, bloodstone, moonstone, pearl, topaz
Gaining self-assurance—lapis lazuli

I’d like to talk about the properties of yellow topaz.
It is the birthstone of November, and it is the yellow color of the Third Chakra, one of the seven energy centers of the body, located at the solar plexus. It is the center of emotions. The planet of influence is Jupiter.

The ancient Greeks believed that it had the power to increase a person’s strength and make its wearer invisible. Topaz was also said to change color in the presence of poisoned food or drink. The gem’s mystical curative powers waxed and waned with the phases of the moon. When the powdered stone was mixed with wine, it was considered a cure for asthma, insomnia, burns and hemorrhages.

Yellow Topaz strengthens faith and optimism. It assists in recognising your own abilities, and can attract helpful people to assist you in your endeavors.
It bestows charisma and confidence with pride in ones own abilities. Yellow Topaz regenerates cellular structures and is beneficial in relieving nervous exhaustion through stress. It can help increase blood circulation, and can influence the function of the liver, gallbladder and the endocrine glands, as well as relieve pain associated with disorders in these areas.

It is highly energizing and warming.  It is used to stimulate the intellect; it aids abstract thinking and creativity by bringing forth ideas from the mental level into concrete form. It is said that one can place a Golden Topaz in the home to protect against break-ins and fire.

Topaz is the hardest silicate mineral found in nature. It is a silicate of aluminum, and contains about 20 percent water and fluorine.
The relative proportions of these impurities are responsible for the color variations of the stones. Crystals with more water are yellow to brown, while those with more fluorine are typically blue or colorless, like aquamarine.

About Gemma

I have been surrounded with art and creativity all my life - both my parents were professional artists in New York City. I pursued a career in fashion design while living in New York and continued my involvement after moving to Italy. I became increasingly more interested in art while taking painting and sculpture classes at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and began painting seriously about 10 years ago. The jewelry design is a natural continuation of this creativity. Jewelry design is an art, and I approach each piece as if it were a painting using color as my primary inspiration. Color also reflects emotions, and I believe that it can actually effect emotions. I have created a unique collection of jewelry in semi-precious stones and silver utilizing gems and crystals. The colors and beauty that the stones themselves possess reflect specific energy and healing properties. Gems and minerals have long been known for their healing and beneficial effects and I like to create with those specific aims in mind. Gemstones and crystals emit specific vibrations, according to the mineral content, and also according to their color. We see color because of its vibration. All is matter of vibration, and scientists have long known this to be true. I love to explore the many possibilities that these energies and colors can offer combining the elements of design with the esoteric and energetic properties of the stones themselves. My collection sold for ten years in our jewelery store in the suburbs of Rome. It is currently sold online through my website and my Etsy Shop. I am continually creating new additions to my jewelery collection.
