Topaz and Citrine Origin
Prior to the twentieth century, all pearls in the earthy colored, orange, and yellow shading range were called topaz. Current gemology was just perceived as a science during the 1930s. Presently, we perceive topaz and yellow or earthy colored quartz as isolated species. However, numerous diamond setters have kept on utilizing the old names. For instance, “smoky topaz” is significantly more liable to be smoky quartz than earthy colored topaz. Citrine gemstones are less regularly mistaken for topaz gemstones, yet it occurs. Quartz and topaz are different pearl species. They’re made out of different synthetic substances and have different physical and optical properties. They’re likewise esteemed differently. The quartz group of diamonds is substantially more typical than topaz.
The assortment of topaz shades incorporates lackluster, light blue, yellow, orange, pink, violet, earthy colored and, once in a while, red. By far, most of the blue topaz seen today is the lasting aftereffect of treating dry topaz with light and warming. The rainbow impact found in “Spiritualist Topaz” is made by covering boring topaz with a slim artificial film. Minas Gerais, a state in Brazil, is perhaps the main hotspots for top-notch topaz, which has been dug there for over two centuries. Yellow to orange, red, pink, violet and mixes of red with orange or purple are a portion of the tones uncovered here. Northwestern Pakistan is known for delivering pink topaz.

Somewhere down on the planet’s biggest freshwater wetland lies Bolivia’s Anahí mine, a significant hotspot for common, unheated citrine.
