The Topaz is known as aluminum fluorosilicate. Most often, it occurs colorless. On the Mohs scale, The Topaz is rated at an 8 for hardness. (The Mohs scale of mineral hardness was devised by German mineralogist Frederich Mohs in 1812. He selected ten minerals because they were common or readily available and rated them. The scale is not linear, but arbitrary.)
