More About Golden Topaz:
Golden topaz was one of the first crystals discovered and used by humans, prized for its connection with the sun. It’s also known as one of the “Sunday Gemstones” both because its color associates it with the sun, and because this spiritual stone is traditionally valued for lifting curses (so it’s connected with the holy day of Sunday). Its oldest known use is for protection by turning away the evil eye, and ever since it has been associated with just about anything related to healing the eyes.
For instance Saint Hildegard von Bingen 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.
Historically, Topaz was said to have another odd power. When placed in anything poisonous, it was said to become invisible (Don’t try this at home!). In the modern day, people still see Topaz as a stone of light that can surround us with a golden and spiritual glow. This sunny crystal is also known to be useful for spiritual development.
