The staff from my new age shop, Mimosa Books & Gifts, had this to share:
Golden topaz was one of the first crystals discovered and used by mankind, prized for its connection with the sun. It’s also known as the “Sunday Gemstone,” both because of its color associates it with the sun, and because this spiritual stone is traditionally valued for lifting curses. Its oldest known use is for turning away the evil eye, and ever since it has been associated with just about anything eye-related. Saint Hildegarde went so far as to claim that a piece of topaz taken into a dark chapel would give off so much light, you could even read a prayer book by it.
She also recommended a crystal elixir of sorts for eye ailments: topaz soaked in wine and applied to the eyelids, with the leftover wine used as an eyewash over the next few days. And topaz was said to have another odd power: when placed in anything poisonous, it would become invisible. (This sounds a bit unlikely, so we don’t really recommend it… For that matter, we’re kinda dubious about the wine thing too.) Nowadays, people still see topaz as a stone of light that can surround us with a golden and spiritual glow. This sunny crystal is useful for mental irregularities such as insomnia and nightmares, as well as matters of positive spiritual development.
