It is worth noting that colorless topaz can be heated to become blue topaz, so when we see blue topaz on the market, we should pay attention to whether it is natural or processed colorless topaz .

2. Clarity

Topaz has a very high clarity, as if to describe it, it is the clear stream, which is completely clean. Usually we will not see inclusions or blemishes on polished topaz. Such a nearly perfect schedule is also one of the reasons why Topaz is so popular in the market.

The size of rough topaz is generally relatively large, and the hardness is high and can be polished, so it can be made into a variety of different jewelry.

Generally speaking, the larger the gemstone, the higher the value. Topaz has a higher value because most rough stones have a good weight. Topaz of small size is not very high in price.

The crystals of rough topaz are generally columnar and elongated, so in order to reduce loss when cutting, they are usually ground into an oval or pear shape.

Topaz can be cut in many ways, but when facing brightly colored topaz such as red topaz, in order to best show its luster effect and maintain its original weight as much as possible, emerald cut is usually used. work.
