December Birthstone Spotlight: BLUE TOPAZ
Blue topaz is the hardest of the silicate minerals and its name comes from the Sanskrit word for fire. Pure topaz is colorless, so the blue hue is achieved by heating the stone. Ancient civilizations believed this gem contained cooling properties, and it was often used for its supposed healing powers. Today, the blue topaz is considered to be symbolic of love and fidelity.
If you have a December birthday, you’ll share this birthday month with country music giants like Barbara Mandrell (December 25th) and Nashville’s own residents Hank Williams III (December 12th) and Taylor Swift (December 13th).
