I love finding out the what healing qualities gemstones have based on Old World literature and ritual. According to crystal-cure.com:
Topaz is a soothing, empathetic stone that will direct energy to the place it is most needed. It heals and energizes. Topaz is a promoter of truth and forgiveness. Use it to find your own path.At the Pretty Peacock, we tend to search for November's birthstone in the dark amber-brown or orange hues and we love to show off our birthstone in our Good Karma Wise Owl Pendant.
Look at this sweet little face (the owl's not bad, either)!
