Citrine is in the quartz family and is recognized as the birthstone for November. With a hardness of 7 out of 10, it is a durable, beautiful stone for everyday pieces or special occasions.
Popularized repeatedly over time through ancient Rome through the art deco period and the golden age of Hollywood, citrine comes in such a variety of colors that will please any taste. Whether you prefer cheerful yellow or deep golden brown or autumnal orange. The name citrine comes from the French word for 'citron,' which means lemon. These colors are perfect for summer or fall.
Citrine was widely believed to have healing powers, and to protect the wearer from bad dreams and provide fortitude for one's internal organs. In some cultures, it supports the wearer with financial aspirations, and also as a mood enhcancer.
Citrine jewelry is an appropriate traditional gift for the thirteenth and seventeenth wedding anniversaries, and is the perfect choice for a mother expecting a November baby.
