Topaz has been known to people much earlier than most of the other minerals. A legend says that it was discovered by pirates whose ship wrecked near the shores of the Cytis Island in the red Sea. The name of the stone refers to the Arabic word topazas, which means, “they sought, and they found”. If we look at its chemical structure, it is a silicate mineral with aluminium and fluorine. It is usually found in tin granites and granite pegmatite, only sometimes it occurs in river deposits. This piece is from Namibia.
