Topaz are one of the five types of gems found in Diablo III. The others are Amethyst, Emerald, Ruby, and Diamond, the last added in Patch 2.0.1 and Reaper of Souls. See the main gems article for full details about gem scarcity, upgrade recipes, strategy, and more.
The Topaz has generally been the least popular gem, with the Thorns build far from viable at any time prior to Reaper of Souls. Magic Find from the helm had some popularity, and Wizards and Witch Doctors enjoyed topaz in their armor, though more in Softcore than Hardcore.
Topaz became more popular in Reaper of Souls with improvements to Thorns, as well as the greatly-increased mainstat bonuses from the higher level gems. With Flawless Royal gems yielding 280 to mainstat, Wiz/WD players found great damage benefit, plus INT's secondary property of adding 1 point of Resist All for every 10 points of INT gave high level Topaz a good defensive bonus as well, providing nearly half the value of a Diamond socketed in armor.

Diablo 3 Development Changes[edit | edit source]
During the Diablo 3 Beta test, Topaz granted Gold Find instead of Magic Find (this bonus was eventually switched with Emeralds). Topaz were also set to boost Defense when socketed in "other" type of items. They grant +Intelligence from such sockets in the final game.
