Hot Pink Oval Topaz Gemstone (2.27 ct) 10x8 mm Oval
Product description: The red and pink versions of this gemstone were commonly used in Russian jewelry during the 18th and 19th centuries, which is why these varieties are often called imperial topaz. Topaz ranges from colourless (white) to yellow, orange, red-brown, light to dark-blue, pink to red, violet and light-green. This is the reason why it can be mistaken for many other gemstones.
