Swiss Blue Topaz is a vivid, brighter blue than the Sky Blue of the range and is also very popular in the jewellery industry because of its ease of availability, reasonable price and consistent colour.  Its treatment takes longer, is more complicated and also more expensive than Sky Blue but it is probably one of the most used, (read commonly found), of any of the semi precious gemstones. Like Sky Blue it is basically White Topaz but the treatment entails neutron bombardment in a linear accelerator and then heat.  At this point, depending on the original locality of the rough, it is held in storage for anywhere from a couple of months to several years until it is has been cleared of any residual radioactivity.
