Characteristics

El topazi en estat natural és de color marró daurat a groc. Sembla citrí pel seu color. Una varietat d’impureses i tractaments el poden fer vermell vi, també gris pàl·lid, taronja vermellós, verd pàl·lid o rosat i opac a translúcid - transparent. Les varietats rosa i vermell provenen del crom que substitueix l’alumini per la seva estructura cristal·lina.

Encara que és molt dur, hem de preocupar-nos de topacio més que d'altres
minerals de duresa similar. A causa d’una debilitat de l’enllaç atòmic de les molècules de la pedra al llarg d’un o altre pla axial. Això dóna una tendència a fracturar-se al llarg d’aquest pla si es colpeja amb força suficient.

Topaz té un índex de refracció relativament baix per a una pedra preciosa. Així, les pedres amb grans facetes o taules no brillen tan fàcilment com les pedres tallades a partir de minerals amb índexs de refracció més elevats. Tot i que la seva qualitat incolora, brilla i mostra més vida que el quars tallat de manera similar. Quan es dóna un tret brillant típic, pot ser que mostri una faceta de taula brillant. Envoltat per aspectes de la corona sense aspecte. O un anell de facetes brillants de la corona amb una taula semblant i apagada.

Champapgne topaz stone Irradiation treatment

Some years ago, it was discovered that colorless topaz crystals could be treated by nuclear radiation. The ionizing energy of the radiation would change the color of the stone. The radioactive energy slightly alters the crystal. It creates a color center that gives color to the formerly colorless crystal. Upon irradiation, the stone first turns a brown to brown green color.

The brown tone can be removed with a gentle heating. Or also even upon exposure to strong sun light for several days. The types of radiation used to accomplish this change include gamma, also beta by high energy electrons, and neutron radiation.
