Those with November birthdays have two beautiful birthstones to choose from: Topaz and Citrine.
Topaz comes in varying hues, with shades of blue being our most popular. Topaz is pleochroic, meaning that the gem can show different colors in different crystal directions. It takes such a high polish, that it can be almost slippery to the touch. The gems typically have no visible inclusions, and appear crystal clear. With all of these characteristics, vibrant Blue Topaz gemstones remind us of shimmering sea waters.
Today, Blue Topaz is not only given for November birthday's, but also for a 4th Wedding anniversary, a new job, or moving to a new city. Historically, various groups have associated it with giving strength, breaking spells, assuring long life, beauty, and intelligence.
Citrine is prized for its golden yellow and orange hues. These vibrant, sunny stones are associated with the power of the Sun. They typically have no visible inclusions. Historically, Citrine is believed to soothe tempers, calm the wearer, and promote joy and optimism. Today, Citrine is not only given for November birthday's, but also for a 13th Wedding anniversary, and to aid someone in manifesting new opportunities.
