Imperial topaz is the birthstone for those born in November and is also the gemstone that commemorates the 23rd wedding anniversary. Imperial topaz is also known as "precious topaz". It is the most sought after natural topaz. Considered to be the color of the setting sun, imperial topaz gets its name from the Russian tsars, because the tsars claimed exclusive rights to the gemstones mined in Russia. Imperial topaz is less common than other types of naturally occurring topaz, and is only found in Brazil and Russia. Imperial is said to be beneficial to artists, writers, public speakers and others who are concerned with communication and self-expression.
