Quality

The quality of Yellow Topaz is judged collectively after analyzing its origin, color and clarity. Any change, major or minor, can significantly influence the overall worth of the gemstone. Buy the best quality Yellow Topaz gemstone to make the most of your shopping.

  • Origin–Yellow topaz mines have been discovered in Brazil, Ukraine, Russia, Africa, Australia, United States and Asia. However, yellow topaz from Brazil, is the most popular variety considering the richer color consistency and overall clarity found in the majority of gemstones mined from the region. Also, yellow topaz from Ukraine and Russia have become popular with time.

  • Color– Yellow Topaz comes in many colors, from light to deep dark yellow to brown. But Brazilian Imperial Topaz displaying golden yellow hues with a light tint of pink, is the most desirable color with highest aesthetic and astrological relevance.

  • Clarity– Clarity is broadly judged by the transparency and inclusions found in the gemstone. Visible inclusions in yellow topaz exist in and as tear shaped cavities. Invisible inclusions can only be seen with a microscope. A transparent, natural yellow topaz gem with least number of visible inclusions is highly regarded for astrological and aesthetic uses.

In vedic astrology, both, yellow topaz and Citrine are known as the substitutes of yellow sapphire. While yellow topaz belongs to Topaz mineral family and ranks better on Moh’s scale of hardness, Citrine comes from quartz family faring slightly lesser than yellow topaz. If and when selecting yellow topaz for astrological reasons, it is must to ensure that it is not heat treated. Since fine quality original yellow topaz is extremely rare and thus highly likely to be heat treated, it is usually less recommended to be used or worn as the substitute of yellow sapphire. Likewise, since natural Citrine is abundantly available and rarely treated, it is suggested as the first choice. However, if one can procure a lab tested, genuine yellow topaz, he can wear it as a substitute of yellow sapphire.
Topaz deposits occur across the globe but pure yellow topaz mines are quite limited. Because of being inexpensive and easily available, colorless topaz stones are often heated to produce sharp yellow or brownish yellow hue to reap massive profits. Heat treated topaz loses its color after a certain period of time while natural, original Yellow Topaz retains its aesthetic and astrological relevance. For this reason, natural, pure yellow topaz are far more expensive than colorless or heat treated topaz gemstones. At GemPundit, you can buy natural yellow topaz online from our huge catalog.
As per vedic standards, one should wear a yellow topaz ring in the index finger of the working hand. Astrologers believe that wearing yellow topaz in panchdhaatu, gives good results in wearer’s life. Alternatively, it can also be customized in gold, silver, white gold and platinum as per wearer’s personal choice. One should always consult an astrologer before wearing an astrological gemstone.
