Topaz is a biome-specific gemstone introduced with Biomes O'Plenty. It appears as an ore, an item, and decorative block.
Topaz Ore can be discovered in several biomes, favouring tropical and jungle regions. A current list of these biomes can be found under Topaz Biomes.
An Iron Pickaxe or better is required to mine Topaz Ore. A Silk Touch Pickaxe can be used to collect the block of ore rather than the Topaz drop. The ore drops one gem with an unenchanted pickaxe. With fortune, the ore can drop up to four gems, one extra per level of fortune. Topaz Ore cannot be smelted.
9 Topaz can be crafted into a Block of Topaz for storage or decoration. These stack to 64.
