Name first given by Hisinger & Berzelius (1806) for a mineral from Finnbo (Finbo), Falun, Dalarna, Sweden. It was named pyrophysalite (pyrofysalit in swedish) due to its great number of vesicles which appears in it when treated before the blow-pipe.

Later showed to be identical with topaz.
A synonym of Topaz
