Here's a little Gregorian Birthstone Poem for all you November babies:

Who first comes to this world below
With drear November's fog and snow,
Should prize the topaz's amber hue,
Emblem of friends and lovers true!

Topaz is also the alternate gift for the 19th anniversary.

It's unnatural to love jewelry as much as I do. Really. I'm sort of worried. Is it possible to have too much jewelry? No you say? Whoo hoo! I'm ok! Thank you!

Whew. Now that we have that taken care of we can get to this kick-butt necklace. It's definitely not for the timid. I love, love, love this necklace.

The stompin big pendant is a mega dose Smokey Topaz with Amethyst and Lemon Quartz for company. The stones are set in Sterling Silver and just pop like crazy. The length of this bad boy is an astounding 3.5" including bail, with a width of just under 1.25" at the widest point. It's "bona fide".

The necklace is no less amazing with its 18x13mm nuggets of Smokey Topaz separated by enough Thai Hill Tribe Silver and Sterling Silver to need an armed guard! It's finished with a Thai Hill Tribe silver hook and measures 22" stem to stern.

Did I say I love love love this necklace? Well I do!

History, myth, legend and lore:

Topaz is a symbol of love and affection, and has been said to be an aid to ones sweetness and disposition.

The Greeks and Romans greatly valued topaz as a gemstone. In medieval times, small wine-yellow Saxonian Topaz was mined at Schneckenstein in the Erzgebirge Mountains in Saxony Germany, and several rulers wore these specimens in jewelry.

Topaz was one of the stones selected by Aaron for his priestly breastplate. He placed it on there as the second stone in the first row of stones. Topaz is also found as one of the stones in Revelation and is one of the stones of the apocalypse.

In Egyptian practices, it is the symbol of Ra, the Sun god, who was the giver of life. In Europe, topaz became strongly linked with Apollo, who is also a solar being.

In Hindu mythology, the word for topaz means heat. Topaz is one of the sacred stones of the Hindu’s Kalpa tree. It is well known and very sacred to the Hindus. It is one of the 9 sacred stones upon a talisman of nine gems. The Hindus believe that worn as a pendant, this gemstone will relieve thirst, sharpen intelligence and lengthen one’s life.

In Africa, healing rituals with topaz are practiced to establish communion with the realm of the spirit. The Bushmen who bring it to their shamanic work both for journeying, working with ancestors, and for healing, treat the stone as a highly sacred one.

Topaz was once was considered one of five elemental substances that would bring protection to the deities. The figure of a falcon engraved upon a topaz would bring the wearer goodwill and kindness of the powers that be. It was also thought that this would help one attract wealthy patrons who would support artistic endeavors.

Many believed wearing a topaz ring would keep death from coming prematurely and would control insomnia and greed. Topaz has also been long believed to be useful for those unable to control lust- a good stone for people with sex addictions.

Topaz has been said to be of great use for protection against a wide variety of problems from emotional difficulties to fires and accidents.

In 1255, St Hildegard of Bingen, the famous mystic, offered a simple remedy for failing eyesight: steep a topaz in wine for three days and then lightly rub it over the eyes. Worn around the neck, topaz was also thought to cure madness.

Topaz is used to promote good fortune. In fact, it has been said that dreaming of topaz may indicate that good fortune is on its way. These dreams can also suggest love affairs.

Traditions hold that topaz bestowed many benefits upon its wearer. It would dispel cowardice, calm the temper, cure madness and plague, and sharpen the wit.

The stone has also been credited with being effective against bleeding and heart disease. It has been said to instantly lose its color to indicate that poison is present, thus protecting its owner.

The stone has also been thought to bring fidelity and friendship if constantly worn without being set aside. It was also believed to be an effective talisman against accident and fire, and to bring increased intuition and long life. To Christians, it has been known as a symbol of uprightness and virtue.
