The stone that we’re going to tell you about today is the mystic fire topaz, which is a relatively newer kind of gemstone. By a newer kind of gemstone, we mean that its properties have been comparatively recently discovered! The name itself sounds so magical, doesn’t it? We’re sure, you’re already eager to know if you can go get this pretty stone for yourself immediately. Without any further ado, let us move on to the meaning and healing properties of the mystic fire topaz.
✦The mystic fire topaz is actually not found in nature. It is a transparent type of topaz that has been subjected to treatment of titanium vapor so as to give it an array of different colors. The bluish-green colors are the more common ones in the mystic fire topaz.
✦The treatment that the mystic fire topaz is subjected to does not change the properties and powers of the original topaz, contrary to popular belief.
✦This stone measures 8.0 on the Mohs hardness scale, and is easily breakable. It needs to be handled carefully, and is best handled if set in a ring, pendant, earrings, keyring, etc.
✦Topaz deposits can be found in countries all over the world, especially in Brazil, Russia, Sri Lanka, Australia, China, Japan, Mexico, and the USA, to name a few.
✦The mystic fire topaz is popular for its mesmerizing rainbow colors, which are said to change as and when the stone is tilted. Its smooth, glassy and brilliant shine too has earned it quite a reputation among experts and enthusiasts alike.
✦Topaz gemstones are famous for being so lustrous and ‘eye clean’ that they can be carefully and properly examined even by the naked eye.
✦Since the mystic fire topaz is made out of versatile material, it can be shaped into almost any form that one wishes. It is also famously resistant to scratches, though it cannot withstand too much force, which may lead to breakage or fractures in the stone.
The mystic fire topaz is believed to bear not only physical healing properties, but also mystical and magical healing properties.
The mystic fire topaz protects the wearer from any sort of negativity around him/her. It is believed to be a protective charm against all sorts of danger, including mental and emotional troubles that may be about to befall the wearer.
✦ Strengthens Faith
For those who feel they’re losing faith when it comes to waiting for what they want, or for a solution to a problem, this stone would be of great help. The mystic fire topaz is believed to help strengthen the faith of the wearer against all odds. It also helps in strengthening the wearer’s spiritual beliefs.
Experts recommend this stone to artistic people―writers, painters, designers, or anyone else who does something involving high levels of creativity. The mystic fire topaz is believed to inspire creativity within the wearer, which can prove very beneficial for those who are artistic.
✦Releases Burdensome Emotions
Sometimes, there are emotions troubling us which continue to become a heavier and heavier mental burden as time passes. These emotions may be depression, feelings regarding one’s love life, feelings about weight, etc. The mystic fire topaz is believed to help release such feelings.
Wearing the mystic fire topaz is said to improve the metabolism of the body, thus helping the digestive process become smoother. It is also believed to improve the sense of taste, as well as help with weight loss.
✦Protects from Poison
Yes, poison! While the validity of this point is almost non-existent, folklore tells us tales of kings who dipped their topaz jewelry into their wines or anything else that they had to consume, to see if it was poisoned or not. Of course, the stone never replaced official tasters!
✦Other Physical Healing Properties
Other than improving metabolism of the body, the mystic fire topaz is said to help lessen the effects of aging on the skin. It is also believed that this stone improves blood circulation, and strengthens the thyroid glands of the body. It is supposed to be very helpful in treating different sorts of pain.
Again, we don’t know the validity of this healing property of the mystic fire topaz. Some experts believe that this stone helps move on to the next realm after death. This would mean that if a person wears or uses a mystic fire topaz, he/she would be able to make the transition to the next realm after dying much quicker.
Mystic Fire Topaz Care
Since this stone is prone to breakage, great care must be taken to not subject it to a lot of force. If you want to clean your mystic fire topaz, use a soft cloth and some soapy water. However, it must be ensured that no soapy residue is left on the stone to avoid any kind of damage. If you wear a mystic fire topaz in a ring or pendant, it is advisable to remove it when indulging in any strenuous physical activity. When storing it away, wrapping it in a soft cloth is recommended.
The dazzling mystic fire topaz is said to be attuned to the throat chakra, and many believe it to be an ideal gemstone for those born in the month of November. Regardless of what opinion one may have about its mystical healing properties, it cannot be denied that this stone makes for an exquisite image when worn as a part of the attire.
