But we’re more than just a site about rocker news and updates – we’re deeper than that. We bring you non-conformist news, ideas, and cool stories from the internet that we think you’d enjoy. We give you tips on when and where the latest concerts will be, who’s playing what, why, and any solid appearances they’ve made recently. We also are a site for anything that interests or writers, editors, and fans. We have more dimensions than just one that bangs their head up and down, but instead of rejecting the stereotype of a headbanger, we embrace it. We are proud of the passion music brings us, and the freedom and feeling we get from banging our heads around when we rock out. Music should rev you up and get your heart going, and should make you want to dance around, free yourself, and let go—even for only a few hours.

We want to bring that freedom and passion to all our pursuits, not just our musical passions. Are you as into saving the animals as you are into Black Sabbath? Then go after it, and share your passion with other headbangers!

Blue Topaz Gemstone Jewelry

The blue topaz gemstone is a marvelous choice in jewelry. It is said to be a “semi-precious” stone. What does that mean? All gems are purer, clearer, or more crystalline forms of common minerals. Common minerals are less spectacular, less beautiful, and not so fashionable. Nonetheless, the makeup of the stones is the same. Diamonds, emeralds, and rubies are examples of true gems. Other stones are classified as semiprecious or ornamental. The value of a gem is generally determined by its scarcity and demand. Other factors include luster, transparency, color, and hardness.

blue topaz gemstones and ringsLuster is determined by the way a gem reflects light. Transparent gems also refract or bend light. These gems are cut in such a way as to bend the light back to the eye of the person examining the stone. http://tanzaniteringshq.com explains that color can add or detract greatly from a gem’s value. Many stones are found in a variety of colors and their value is further defined by the scarcity or abundance of each particular color. Hardness is important in terms of wear ability and life of the stone. The harder the stone the better it resists scratching.

Transparent gems are strikingly beautiful. Their color and hardness match that of most other stones, but their luster and brilliance give them a commercial value peculiar to themselves. Most transparent gems are oxides of metal elements. Some transparent gems such as ruby and sapphire are identical in mineral composition and differ only in color. The value of the stones is largely determined by their lack of flaws, color brilliance, transparency, and size.

Topaz is commonly a yellow gemstone but is found in colors including yellow, blue, green, violet, clear, and brown. Topaz is slippery, with a slick surface not found in other minerals. Some large crystals have been found weighing more than 600 pounds. The most important commercial source of Topaz is Brazil. Topaz is believed by some to possess mystical powers. These powers are said to increase when there is a new moon or when it is full in the sign of Scorpio. The wearer of the stone is supposed to be open to receiving strong impressions from astral sources.

Mystical or not, the topaz gemstone can be a wonderful addition to any jewelry collection. Among the most beautiful of all semi-precious gemstones is the blue topaz. The sparkle and brilliance of a blue topaz necklace or bracelet can make the wearer feel like royalty. Its rich, cool color catches the light and reflects it back to the beholder.
