Topaz is a very hard, durable, golden, translucent precious stone found in large crystals in granite. While this form of corundum is usually yellow or brown, it can be made pink, red, or a bright light blue if exposed to great temperatures, such as by thrusting it into forge fires. Topaz can be used as an augmenting component in spells that ward against or destroy curses. A topaz polished with a specific alchemical wax gains the ability to store any healing spell of up to 4th level cast upon it and weakens the topaz, making it easily crushed. Powdering the stone and drinking it in milk or wine turns the liquid into a sort of potion. Topaz-enhanced “healing potions” have a distinctive cold, sour taste. Drinking this liquid from a Spirit Silver goblet automatically empowers the effect (as per the Empower Spell metamagic).
