White Topaz

 

White topaz is once again becoming a popular stone, often used as a diamond simulant. It hasn't the fire of cubic zirconia and therefore makes it a useful substitute for replacing the now unavailable white spinels in older pieces of jewellery. It is also an attractive stone in its own right.
