From an article printed in the Fort Worth Star Telegram in 1998;

"MASON -- There is a shortage in this scenic Hill Country town. People talk in hushed tones about it; visitors probe the town square, their noses pressed against merchants' windows.

They want topaz, the official gemstone of Texas, and it's found only here among the granite hills and sandy creek beds. But it isn't unearthed easily. The locals who have it won't let it go. They keep it secreted away in shoe boxes. Those who search for it used to find it quickly, but they don't anymore.

Topaz was first recognized in Mason County in 1904. Old-timers remember stumbling onto the quartzlike gemstone while searching the creek beds for arrowheads. Sometimes the stones were so big, they could be used as doorstops.

But it was the arrowhead that had value in those days. The topaz was just another pretty rock.

Mason County boasts the largest gem-quality topaz crystal ever found in North America. It is a 1,296-gram pale blue crystal that now resides in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington.

Most pieces are considerably smaller, generally less than a couple of inches long with a diameter of less than an inch.

Texas topaz is usually colorless to white, though some of the most beautiful and startling gemstones are in the light-blue to sky-blue range. In color, size and clarity, Texas topaz is considered among the best in the United States."

Texas Trivia

DAIRY INDUSTRY. Throughout the nineteenth century Texas milk production was for the most part a haphazard, subsistence-type enterprise. Town dwellers as well as farm families kept milk cows, drank fresh milk, and made butter and cheese. Cheese manufacturing was the first dairying enterprise to become specialized and removed from the farm. After the Civil War , cheese makers of the old dairy belt stretching from New York to Wisconsin produced most of the cheese consumed in Texas. Even as late as the 1930s cheese manufacturing in Texas was small-scale. Gail Borden established a condensed-milk plant at Bordenville in 1872, but most of the canned milk sold in Texas during the nineteenth century was produced and processed in the northern states.
