Shine Bright in November’s Birthstone

Birthstone of November

Shine bright this month with November’s beautiful birthstones: Topaz and Citrine! These richly colored gemstones are known to have calming energies while bringing fortune and warmth.

The name Topaz derives from the Greek topazos, meaning “to seek”. Topaz crystals are formed within lava flows of igneous rocks and with a Hardness on the Mohs Scale of 8, it is one of the hardest minerals on the scale and the hardest silicate. Precious topaz ranges in color from brownish orange to yellow. Its golden color was believed by the Egyptians to be the glow cast by the sun god, Ra.
The name citrine comes from the old French word “citrin,” which means lemon. Citrine may have actually begun as Amethyst, but the heat from nearby molten rock changed it to the yellow form of quartz. The warm yellow color of Citrine is said to be a gift from the sun and is believed to be a healing gemstone. Citrine is also recognized as the preferred gift for the 13th anniversary. According to legends, Citrine is the “The Stone of Success”. Chinese emperors would wear citrine jewelry and believed it would increase intellectual capabilities and broaden the mind.

Today, these gems remain one of the most affordable and popular yellow gemstones. Whether shopping for a November birthday, a 13th wedding anniversary, or just an affordable piece of jewelry to compliment any style, Topaz and Citrine make a perfect gift.
