These are a very fine pair of gems.

Blue Topaz, Trouble With Tribbles, Pakistan, #517
Zoom

Stone : Blue Topaz
Cut By : Doug Menadue, 2013
Item : #517
Design : Trouble With Tribbles
Origin : Pakistan
Treatments : Unknown *
Weight : 10.5 carats
Clarity : Slightly Included
Size : 14.3 x 14.3 x 8.5mm
Price : SOLD

Comments : The colour of this gem is absolutely fantastic and would rival the best aquamarine. The design is one of my favorite trillion cuts and works very well in topaz, making a very flashy and lively gemstone. It is a good size and would look great as a pendant - note that the corners are designed to allow easy setting with claws. It does have some minor inclusions. At night time under lights the gem is outstanding! Set in yellow gold this gem would be dynamite. Overall a very fine gemstone.

* Please note, this gem was cut from a parcel of blue topaz that I purchased as coming from Pakistan. The material was sold to me as being natural but the intensity of colour of several pieces (of which this was one) suggests it might be enhanced. Either way, the gem is fabulous and the colour fantastic, better then aqua.

This beauty is stunning and I have cut it in one of my favorite oval designs for large topaz. This design really looks great in topaz and out in the sunlight the fireworks in this gem is dazzling with big strong flashes of colour. There are several very fine silver needle inclusions which are very hard to see and do not detract from the appearance of the gem at all, you really need a loupe to see them. The gem is bright and clean with the classic light blue colour that this material is known for. This gem looks great in all lighting situations and at nighttime it really stands out. An exceptional gemstone and one that would suit the collector or any fine jewelry setting.

Comments : A very striking and beautiful pair of natural blue topaz cut in my Mystic Star design. These two lovely gems were cut from the same piece of rough and are what I call 'sibling stones' because they are 'related'. They were cut for a couple who wanted something very special and they liked that the two gems came from the one stone and as such, will always share a connection. The design has a five pointed star on the pavilion and really does look amazing. They truly are little works of art.

It turned out a very fine gemstone and the customer was over the moon.

Comments : A beautiful O'Briens Ck natural blue topaz. It is a nice soft blue and is cut in one of my octagon dome designs. If you are familiar with those amazing colourful geometric Moroccan tile designs that are found on walls of buildings and fountains and so forth, then you'll see the influence here in this gemstone design. It is a big stone and has lots of brilliance and flash... something special! Remember, all the topaz from O'Brien's Ck has been hand dug. No bulldozers have been used in the production of this gemstone.

Stone : Natural Blue Topaz
Cut By : Doug Menadue, 2011
Item : #402
Design : Asscher Cut
Origin : O'Briens Creek, Mt Surprise, North Queensland, Australia
Treatments : None
Weight : 19.3 carats
Clarity : Eye Clean
Size : 14 x 14 x 12.5 mm
Price : SOLD

Comments : This is an outstanding natural blue topaz gemstone in all aspects. For starters the colour is that lovely light blue colour that makes the natural blue topaz truely something special. The gem is eye clean and crystal clear, and it's BIG! The gem is cut in the classic Asscher Cut design and the "windmill" or "propeller" patterns in this particular stone are first class and really do standout. The photos really do not do this gem any justice and it is so much better in real life.

This gem would make a superb collector's stone of a large faceted natural blue topaz, flawlessly cut in the classic Asscher. It would be the centre piece of any such collection.

I have also included some "action" shots showing the topaz in the rough form prior to cutting. It is immersed in a white cap full of water. This is an aid to seeing where the blue "zones" are in the stone so that it can be correctly orientated to maximise the blue colour in the cut gem. The other pics show the gem in different stages of being faceted. This is a top shelf natural blue topaz, an exceptionally fine gemstone!

* Note - any black that appears in the facet reflections are simply that of the camera lens. The gem is very crisp and bright when you look at it in person.

Comments : The history of topaz is a long and ancient one and the gem has long been used as an ornament and jewelry stone. The name "Topaz" is thought to come from the name of an island in the Red Sea formerly called Topazos but now Zebirget. Topaz was mined here on this island. Another possible origin of the name Topaz is that it comes from the Sanskrit word "tapas" which means "fire" or "heat". This could be due to the yellow/red colour that topaz sometimes occurs in.

Many people believe that topaz comes only in yellow and this is true, it does come in yellow. However fancy colors like yellow, reds, oranges and pinks are actually quite rare, so is the very beautiful natural blue. My personal thoughts on why yellow has become closely associate with topaz, in the same way that blue is associated with sapphire, is that in historical times the technology or ability to differentiate between types of stones was very limited. Yellow quartz, now known as Citrine, is quite common in many parts of the world and I believe that alot of yellow topaz was actually yellow quartz. Today we have the ability to tell the difference between the various types of stones but one still has to be cautious in the marketplace and buy from a reputable dealer as there is still the potential for confusion.

Topaz makes an ideal jewelry stone as it is hard and very durable. It cuts well into brilliant designs and becomes a gem that has lots of scintillation and "fire". If I was pushed to pick a personal favorite of all the gemstones, I would probably have to give
natural blue topaz the nod. It is a stone that I love to cut and the colour, though soft, is divine. Truly it is! The soft blue colour is for me, the most elegant of blues, soft and delicate, sometimes ethereal, sometimes icy like the blue in an arctic iceberg. It is cooling on a hot day, fresh and light and always cheery and pleasing. Each stone is unique in its coloring, some have more blue, some less. The colour is easily as beautiful as aquamarine and in truth, far better then the vast majority of aquamarine that is in the marketplace.

Sadly, with the advent of modern gemstone treatment technology, natural blue topaz has taken an undeserved fall from popularity. Irradiation and heating is now routinely used to change the clear silvery white topaz into a uniform array of vivid treated blues. These stones have the trade names of london blue, electric blue, swiss blue and sky blue. The colour is the same for each category and this is the material that you see in jewelry stores across the land. It is cheap and plentiful whereas the natural blues are scarce and relatively expensive. This sudden mass explosion of treated blues dealt the natural blues a blow and that is sad, for these natural blues are easily one of the most beautiful gems in the world of coloured gemstones. Blue sapphires might be the Queen of Gems, but if there is a Princess of Gems, she would be a natural blue topaz.
