It is believed this gemstones carries warm lively energies, that better connect the wearer to their inner spirit, and fills ones life with a burning passion, increases energy, intelligence, and increases the fire of the wearers love life. Three independent and unrelated ancient cultures all made the same association. The Greeks, named the stone after their word for fire. The Ancient Egyptians, who’s dedicated the stone to Ra, their sun god. And the Hindus, who’s word for topaz translates to warmth. There is little question that this stone bestows good energies too all that encounter it. It’s little surprise that the Topaz gets it’s name from the Greek work “Fire”.

On November 17, 2003, ex-soldier John Muhammad is found guilty of one of a series of sniper shootings that terrorized the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area and dominated national headlines in October 2002. Police charged that Muhammad and his 17-year-old accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, killed 10 people and wounded three others during a three-week killing spree. After just over six hours of deliberation, a jury convicted Muhammad of the October 9, 2002, shooting of Dean Meyers while he pumped gas at a Sunoco station in Manassas, Virginia.
In the six-week trial, the prosecution produced more than 130 witnesses and 400 pieces of evidence. Though their case was largely circumstantial—there was no eyewitness to prove that he had actually pulled the trigger—Muhammad was convicted on all four counts against him: the murder of Dean Meyers, murder with the intent to terrorize the government or public, conspiracy to commit murder, and the illegal use of a firearm.
