Imperial Topaz, also known as Golden Topaz, is an aluminum silicate fluoride hydroxide mineral that crystallizes in the form of small prismatic crystals. The color is usually a dark orange that may be semi-transparent, but can also be seen as light red-orange-yellow as well. This color of Topaz can occur naturally, although it is extremely rare. This has led to the market being flooded with heat treated and dyed Colorless Topaz which is being sold as natural Imperial Topaz. As stated in the Colorless Topaz article, it is extremely important to know who you are buying your Topaz crystals from. Especially Imperial Topaz, because it is the most challenging color to identify whether or not it's been treated or not. One suggestion is to look at the piece very closely and examine every small crevice. If it looks too perfect and extremely pure at a lower than average Topaz price range, it has more than likely been treated. To avoid these infuriating purchases, find out as much information as possible on your Topaz dealer’s goods. Most natural Imperial Topaz comes from a few towns in the Minas Gerais region of Brazil. Specifically, the towns of Ouro Prêto, Dom Bosco, Rodrigo Silva, and Saramenha are all heavy producers of natural Imperial Topaz. Aside from Brazil, this Topaz variety is also found in Chelyabinsk, Russia, and the Topaz Mountains in western Utah.
Imperial Topaz is one of the most powerful manifestation stones you can get your hands on. It has a direct link to one’s solar plexus chakra, activating and enhancing one’s personal will. When the driving force behind all we do is awoken and fully activated, anything becomes possible. Our focus, determination, and confidence reach an all time high when resonating with Imperial Topaz’s energy. One becomes a higher, more powerful version of themselves when aligned with this magical stone. It's the perfect crystal for helping you get things done and also pushing your mind into a phase of longevity. This allows you to harness every ounce of energy you have and to channel it directly towards the task at hand. One will not be able to rest their mind or body until their soul is fully pleased.
Try placing a specific intention or goal you have within your Imperial Topaz piece. Let it be a daily reminder of how far you’ve come and just how much further you plan on going. Meditate with this crystal directly over your solar plexus chakra and allow its energies to absorb into your body. Keep your eyes closed and repeat your “dream” mantra in your head while envisioning every outcome. During these subconscious experiences, it’s important to absorb every sight, smell, and detail within these visions. All of these combined factors remind your brain that it is in fact possible to achieve your goal. This exercise helps raise one’s confidence levels and will show you the strength you possess within. You are stronger than you think and Imperial Topaz will help one channel their inner fortitude for the world to see.
We recommend meditating with Garnet and Imperial Topaz together. These two minerals bring out one's inner “fire” and connect them to Mother Earth. This connection helps one stay grounded and provide complete tunnel vision while hard at work accomplishing your dreams. This combination of minerals truly keeps your focus and drive going, with less time being distracted or feeling drained. These crystals together can make any dream or vision a reality. They remind us that our work ethic, confidence level, and our desire to grow will take us places others only dream about.
