Notes about Topaz and the Lone Star Cut:
Topaz’s hardness and desirable range of colors make it an ideal gem for jewelry designs. In the late 1960s, the Texas State Legislature recognized topaz as the “Official State Gemstone”. Then, in 1974, a San Angelo physicist and his brother, a science teacher, came up with a special way to cut the stone.
Called the “Lone Star Cut,” the intricate, computer-designed cut creates the image of the familiar five-pointed star from the Texas State Seal in the center of the stone. By 1977 it was recognized as the “Official State Gemstone Cut” of Texas.
Kirk Root Designs improved on the cut by adding facets to the gems, making a more visible “triple-star”. Our own lapidary cuts each stone for maximum brilliance and color right here in the United States!
