Gorgeous blue topaz is the December birthstone. The blue topaz comes in an array of wintery blue hues that range from light turquoise to deep sapphire (as with the London blue topaz). Few birthstones have such a wide range of universally-loved hues as the blue topaz, making it a favorite gemstone to many.
December Birthstone History & Myth
Blue topaz has been long revered for its beautiful color. The gemstone is found in many places throughout the world, including the US, Russia, Brazil, Germany, Pakistan, Italy, Sweden, Mexico, Japan and Australia. Throughout history, topaz has been revered as a healing gemstone. It was thought to cool hot tempers, and is symbolic of love, understanding and fidelity. Because of this, it is becoming a popular diamond alternative in an engagement ring. Additionally, blue topaz is a hard, durable stone that enables it to stand constant wear over time.
