As of late April 2011, a number of JTV vendors have reported that prices will soon increase across the board for white topaz. This of course affects all white topaz, mystic topaz, london blue topaz, swiss blue topaz and sky blue topaz jewelry and gems. Prices are expected to go up approximately 20-25%. The reason for the increase is due to a scarcity of larger rough pieces (that is, anything that would produce topaz gems that are 10x8mm and up) currently available which drives topaz prices upward.
