Egyptians said Topaz was colored with the golden glow of the sun god. Early discoveries from Brazil in rich reddish cognac colors to vivid pinks, were used to grace the jewelry of the 18th and 19th Century Russian Czarinas, hence earning the moniker of "Imperial Topaz." Fine Topaz often has the amber gold of cognac or the blush of a peach, and all the beautiful warm browns and oranges in between.
