Citrine – 5 Facts About November’s Birthstone

Everywhere you look in the month of November you are likely to be surrounded by colorful leafs falling to the ground. The yellow, orange and reds covering the ground give me a warm feeling. November’s birthstone Citrine does a marvelous job at capturing that warm Fall feeling. Here’s a few things you might not have known about November’s birthstone.

Yellow Quartz: Citrine is a yellow Quartz ranging in color from a pale-yellow to brown. Lovers of canary diamonds might find a new love in Citrine since they are similar in color.

Optimism: If you’re feeling down or uninspired apparently you should put on some Citrine. It is believed this gemstone promotes creativity, helps with your personal clarity and also eliminate self-destructive tendencies. I’ll keep this in mind next time I’m in need of a little motivation.

Protection: In ancient times, Citrine was worn to protect against the plague, snake venom and evil thoughts. Yikes! Glad those are the least of our problems these days. ; )

Lucky 13: If you’re looking for an anniversary gift after thirteen years of marriage, Citrine is the official gemstone for this celebration. I’m sure all the wives out there would not complain by receiving any jewelry after so many years of marriage. Even if you aren’t celebrating 13 years of marriage, the number 13 has always taken the roll of being a bad luck number. Citrine is here to turn that around. Wear citrine jewelry to ward off the bad luck and bring on the good. It’s warm and radiant color emits positive energy for the wearer and everyone around wearer.

Alternative Birthstones: Citrine is often confused with yellow and gold topaz (an alternative November birthstone) as they look very similar, but don’t be fooled, the Topaz alternative is much more expensive than Citrine. This reason why Citrine is more commonly known as November’s primary birthstone, and not topaz, is because topaz comes in a variety of colors besides yellow and Blue Topaz is December’s birthstone.
