November birthstone

November is another month which has two birthstones associated with it. These stones are topaz and citrine. This is one set of two stones which have several similarities, and they have often been mistaken for each other as well.

The principal color of the topaz is yellow, although you will find several variations as well, and the original topaz stone is in fact colorless. The yellow topaz stone was believed to break magic spells and also calm the anger of the wearer. People have got good results in calming nerves and avoiding nightmares after adorning a topaz. Although references to topaz have been found in Greek literature as well as Biblical literature, but physically this gemstone was first found in large amounts in Russia. Till then it was associated mainly with their czars and other royalty, but topaz was democratized to a large extent when huge deposits were found in Brazil. Another less costly variant is the blue colored topaz obtained by irradiation of the colorless variety of topaz gemstone.

Citrine is the second gemstone associated as a November birthstone, and it also has a yellowish look like its twin gemstone topaz. For many years, citrine was actually referred to as gold topaz or Spanish topaz. Although these gemstones are also observed in shades of orange, but the yellowish hues come from iron traces inside the stones. This stone is popularly referred to as a healing quartz, and apart from these healing properties, this stone also suppresses negative emotions and creates new beginnings. Wearers also believe that the citrine gemstone brings wealth.

The multiple beneficial properties of these two gemstones have encouraged people to wear them as part of their jewelry. Online retailers of good quality jewelry, like Giliarto, have incorporated several attractive jewelry designs using these and other birthstones.
