Swiss Blue Topaz has been around for approximately 30 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, which is the case with this stone. The color in this material is what attracts collectors. There are actually very few gems in the world with this color and this gem has a great blue hue. The is also virtually eye clean with a "Trillion" cut.
