Pure topaz is colorless and transparent but is usually tinted by impurities; typical topaz is wine, yellow, pale gray, reddish-orange, or blue brown. It can also be made white, pale green, blue, gold, pink (rare), reddish-yellow or opaque to transparent/translucent. Naturally coloured topaz gets its colour from iron and chromium; the impurities cause colour, whereas pure topaz is colourless. The most rare and valuable topaz is yellow, or pink to reddish-orange, and is known as "imperial topaz" or "precious topaz". Some yellowish-brown topaz gems can gradually fade when continually exposed to daylight. Red and violet topaz is incredibly rare. Orange-brown topaz is heat-treated during a process known as "pinking", which produces a purplish-pink colour. These processes are widely accepted, since they result in permanent colour change, however, they should be declared by traders. There are strict rules regarding the handling of irradiated gemstones, to ensure the safety of gem handlers and buyers. Naturally pink topaz is rare and is usually a pale shade of pink. It occurs in Pakistan.
