While topaz can be found in a spectrum of colors, blue is the only kind associated with December. The word topaz comes from the Sanskrit word for fire, a name inspired by the brilliant intensity of the gem. Topaz is cherished by a number of cultures, including the Hindus, who consider the topaz extremely sacred.
