Scholars trace the origin of the name of the gemstone back to Sanskrit, an ancient language of India. The word topas or tapaz, means “fire” in Sanskrit language. The name might also have originated from the name of the Egyptian island of topazos (now St Johns island) situated in the Red Sea. The Latin writer Pliny the Elder used the island’s name for a yellowish green stone found there. The name was soon adopted for most yellow stones.
