A player encountering a deposit of Topaz.
Main article: Gems

Topaz is a gem found within the Underground and Cavern layers of a world. They are obtained by breaking special blocks that have noticeable yellow-orange gemstones embedded in it. They can also be extracted from Silt, Slush, or Desert Fossil by putting them in an Extractinator. Rarely, Topaz can be found in bulk in its own Gemstone Cave mini biome, or in one that contains all of the other gems as well (besides Amber). Topaz is the second-least valuable gem available, being able to craft the Sandgun, a type of ranged weapon, along with the rest of the items that usually all gems have counterparts of.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, they can be crafted back into their Stone Block forms at a Heavy Work Bench in a Graveyard biome, and can be obtained by cutting down a Topaz Gem Tree. They also have a 28.57*2/7 (28.57%) chance to be dropped by Geodes.

Like all other gems, Topaz can be placed on blocks.
