Meredithbead where are you? I have recently been purchasing topaz jewelry with the stones described as mystic, pink-coated and twilight. I love fine jewelry and love collecting pieces with beautifully colored gem stones. Are these just clear topaz and then artificially colored? The sales clerks in the jewelry stores can't seem to tell me very much about these beautiful gems. I admire your work and have my eye on a particular piece. I'm not really into the faux gems and avoid costume jewelry. For me it has to be the real thing.
