In the month of November you have two (2) birthstones to choose from. A Primary and Secondary that share many features.
Topaz is the Primary Birthstone for November
The name Topaz was probably derived from the Greek word Τοpáziοs. This is the ancient name for a legendary Red Sea island of St. Johns where a yellow stone was mined in ancient times. An alternative origin could be the Sanskrit word “tapas” that means heat or fire.
Topaz is thought to be one of the stones set in the breastplate of the Hebrew high priest.
This stone is another stone with strong calming influences. It is thought to give the wearer a strength of confidence, though without arrogance, that facilitates a calm influence in strong emotional times.
The rich almost golden yellow is thought to bring the wearer strength of purpose and hence wealth and success in dealings. The wearer feels a greater sense of worth and as a consequence experiences a much happier life.
Physically, because of the bright strong golden yellow colour, Topaz has a strong positive influence on the bodies functions. This aids good health in the internal systems, such as the liver, kidney, spleen and digestive systems.
