In the 1960s, British adventurer Max Ostro, often called “the British Indiana Jones,” began his global search for gemstones. Dodging death and danger, Ostro never forgot his hat and was often successful in his mission. His biggest find came in the mid 1980s, when he stumbled across a gigantic blue topaz gemstone deep in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon. Weighing an incredible 9,391 carats, this blue topaz gemstone is now known as the Ostro Stone and is on display at a natural history museum in London.

You can accept this Big Blue adventure and take home your prize of blue topaz, or you can leave it for another, perhaps braver, adventurer to discover.
