Traditional Birthstones for November are the Topaz & Citrine
Topaz' revered by the Egyptians and Romans, who associated it with the setting sun and was also one of the
gemstones that were reported to form the foundation of the twelve gates to the Holy City of the New Jerusalem.
In modern times, rich stores of Precious Topaz were discovered in Russia; placed in the jewels of Russian Czarinas's, the
gem earned the name of "Imperial Topaz" and displays a peachy pink hue and are prized for their rarity and exquisite beauty.
Other Topaz's display a warm golden hue, touched with peach overtones, this gem holds an old
warmly glowing brown of aged whiskey and fine sherry that brings a
youthful blush of the color to those who wear it.
The Citrine' with its mellow gold, captures attention and brightness of our moods, cheerful
and full of light, this sparkling gem was once thought to protect the wearer against various evils.
Today, its radiant color is associated with joyfulness, youth and vitality. Its color ranges from slightly golden
yellow to a medium gold, showing hints of orange. The deeper brownish red quality of Citrine is called
Madeira Citrine, so named for its wine-colored hue.
What ever the reason, the Topaz & Citrine are always fabulous choices.
