Topaz vibrates to the number 6 and is the astrological sign of Sagittarius - Elemental. The energy of Topaz acts through the laws of attraction and manifestation. The ends and facets of a Topaz crystal work very differently from Quartz in that they provide both positive and negative currents. These alternating currents are linked to the forces of manifestation through which attraction and desire flow. Topaz brings out our individuality and creativity, as we trust in our decisions replacing doubt with love and joyfulness. Topaz is an excellent crystal to use in visualization (for healing and/or attracting), in meditation and in projection. It helps us to absorb that which is needed from the universe, by being open to new ideas and willing to act on them. Topaz is known as a stone of true love and success in all endeavours. The ancients used it as an amulet to ward off evil. Topaz is precious to the African bushmen who use it in ceremonies for healing and for connecting with the spirits who have departed from this plane. It is believed to bring wealth and health to the holder. When Topaz is used with Amethyst, it both gives and receives energy from the Amethyst, assisting the use of the laws of attraction and manifestation for the good of all. The Amethyst further provides for the transmutation of undeveloped energies into spiritual vibrations to produce a soothing, clearing and stabilizing effect.
