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.

Two-piece lot of clean large facet rough Swiss Blue Topaz. Total weight is 98.88 carats and individual sizes are 24x18.5x12.5 and 20x21x15 mm. These are 52.35 and 46.53 carats. All Swiss Blue Topaz has started off as a white colorless Topaz and then been exposed to neutrons in a linear reactor or electrons in an electron accelerator as well as heated to produce the Swiss Blue colour. It is held in secure facility for up to 2 years to ensure there is no residual radioactivity and then released. Completely safe and colour fast and industry standard. Both pieces are flawless.
