Item Description

Swiss Blue Topaz has been around for approximately 40 years and made a huge splash when it was introduced on the market. This material typically starts out as colorless Topaz and is treated to create the intense blue color. This method is well known in the gem trade and is not at all frowned upon, provided that people KNOW that they're buying a treated gem. The beautiful blue color still attracts buyers and gem collectors today. There are actually very few gems in the world with this color and this gem is the lovely soft "Swiss Blue" hue. The gem is also virtually eye clean with a "Heart" cut.
