In its natural state Blue Topaz is a light green-blue (more
blue than Aquamarine
). I emphasize this because you may have seen Blue Topaz,
especially in jewellery, which is a bright blue. These stones
are artificially irradiated, and crystal healers generally
prefer not to work with them.
One of the general qualities of all Topaz is the ability
to help to balance energy so that one is neither stressed
nor depressed. In meditating with Topaz regularly it's possible
to feel both calm and energized.
Because of this quality Topaz is considered to be one of
the crystals most valuable in terms of helping one to avoid
procrastination and to take wise (i.e., not thoughtless
or compulsive) action.
Blue Topaz has the particular quality of helping us to release
blockages related to the connection between the heart and
throat centres. Combining the energies of water and fire,
it enables us to communicate powerfully what we are feeling
and to speak, without fear, what we know in our hearts to
This crystal can also enable balance between the throat
and third eye centres, allowing us to both understand and
speak our spiritual understanding to others.
It is considered to be especially valuable for artists.
We are all the creators of our lives as works of art and
beauty. Thus, Blue Topaz can help us all to enhance the
quality of our journeys through physical existence.
In meditation it can be placed on the heart, throat, or
third-eye centres. I find it especially valuable to place
quartz or Kunzite
on the heart chakra
and Blue Topaz on the throat with a Herkimer
diamond in between. This accelerates the release
of blocked energies.
