How to Clean Topaz
Topaz comes in an array of colors. Yellow topaz is the birthstone for the month of November, while blue topaz is one of the birthstones for December. The color of your topaz will not affect its method of cleaning. Topaz earns a score of 8 out of 10 on the Mohs Hardness Scale of minerals. Though topaz is quite a hard stone, its structure makes it susceptible to breakage due to sudden changes in temperature and hard contact.
Connoisseurs Tip: High heat or sudden temperature changes can cause topaz to break. The gem’s color is generally stable to light, but prolonged exposure to heat or sunlight might cause fading in yellow-to-brown, reddish brown, or dark brown topaz.
The best way to clean topaz that is set in gold or platinum is to use Connoisseurs Dazzle Drops Advanced Jewelry Cleaner. With this non-toxic cleanser, you can utilize a fresh solution every time you clean for the most effective results. You can also try Connoisseurs Fine Jewelry Cleaner in the familiar red jar.
If your topaz jewelry is set in silver, use Connoisseurs Dazzle Drops Silver Jewelry Cleansing Crème. This solution cleans and removes tarnish from silver and is safe to use on all gemstones.
