November Birthstone: Spotlight on Citrine

Posted by Carelle Girls on 8th Nov 2017

It’s November in New York City, which means it’s officially time for autumn festivities to commence. Grab a pumpkin spice latte and a sweet cider doughnut and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, or lace up a pair of ice skates at Bryant Park. For some, November means the start of holiday shopping while strolling down 5th Avenue and admiring the fabulous holiday window displays. 

The designated gemstone for the month of November is citrine. The name “citrine” derives from the French word “citron,” meaning lemon. The citrine stone is made from a variety of quartz that range from pale yellow to dark amber. The colors of the stone are caused by chemical impurities; for instance, the iron in citrine gives it pale-yellow color. Ancient mythology suggests that carrying a citrine stone can shield against spite and jealousy. The stone is also used as an amulet to attract love and happiness, and prevent heartbreaks.

For the month of November, we created a list featuring a few of our favorite citrine stones.
