The Healing Gemstone of Everyday Life

The Ancient Greeks believed that Topaz had the power to increase strength and make the wearer invisible.They also thought that Topaz would change color in the presence of poisoned food or drink and that such powers would wax and wane with the phases of the moon.

Topaz was used in many ways in Europe during the middle ages. For instance, two Popes, Clement VI and Gregory II, touched plague sores of petitioners with Topaz during the 15th century.The gemstone was also used to treat insomnia, asthma, and hemorrages. St. Hidegard recommended that topaz be used to cure dimness of vision.

African Bushmen considered Topaz to be precious and used it in ceremonies for healing and for connecting with the spirits who have departed from this plane.

Currently, those who practice New Age techniques use topaz in a number of ways. For instance, topaz, when mounted in gold and worn around the neck, is used to despel enchantment. In the same manner, topaz, worn as an amulet, will drive away sadness, bestow courage, and strengthen the intellect.

New Agers credit Orange Tourmaline with stimulating creative powers associated with the Pelvic Chakra. In the same system of thought, Yellow Topaz, which is associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra, is used to heal an imbalance in those who suffer from either too much will power or too little will power.
