Topaz and Citrine: The Magic Behind November’s Shimmering Birthstones

Didn’t this year just fly by? I can’t believe it’s already November. It’s a great time to reflect on the progress that we’ve made this year, while also steadfastly achieving the intentions we set out in the beginning.

Commonly celebrated as a month of gratitude and abundance, November presents us with the opportunities to embrace these qualities. If you are familiar with gemology and astrology, you know that it is no coincidence that November’s two birthstones, topaz, and citrine are associated with generosity, abundance and overall joy. Many believe that surrounding yourself with topaz and citrine will open you up to the very energies that these stones emit. One of the most effective and sensible ways to do so is wearing them in the form of jewelry.

Citrine

Citrine is a form of quartz that ranges in color from pale yellow to more brown on the spectrum. It’s radiant autumn hues make it a popular jewelry choice for this time of year.

Citrine is thought to be a natural enhancer, believed to visually match and work well in synergy with other stones. For this reason, you will often find it paired with other gemstones in earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings.

Topaz comes in a variety of colors. In its purest form, topaz is colorless, but can easily be tinted during its formation process to take on just about every beautiful color of the rainbow. Fortunately, this makes it easy for people with different color preferences to incorporate topaz into their daily lives.

Because of its versatility, topaz, like its partner in crime, citrine, work great as simplistic, everyday pieces, or as bold statement jewelry.
