The topaz crystal is considered quite precious by the African Bushmen, being used in ceremonies for healing and for connecting with the spirits who have departed from this plane. It is considered to bring health and wealth to the holder.
When topaz is used in conjunction with the amethyst, it both gives and receives energy from the amethyst facilitating the utilization 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. This combination of minerals is quite useful for both white magic and healing.
