pinkish-orangish-red, Brazil
4 ct

In 1735, some topazes found in Brazil were so beautiful that the epithet ‘imperial’ seemed appropriate. Today too, the most valuable stones come from here, and only they bear the name ‘imperial topaz’. That makes them ‚relatives‘ of the Burmese jade, for it is only with these two stones, which both get their colour from the rare element chromium, that the noblest are titled ‘imperial‘. This outstanding Imperial Topaz features a mixture of colours in one stone: from a pinkish-orange to the highly coveted pinkish-red. One of the best gems in the world.
