November's birthstone, Citrine, is a quartz that ranges from pale yellow to a honey orange colour. The name "Citrine" comes from the Old French word for lemon, because of the lemon inspired shades. Its warm colour is said to be a gift from the sun, making this yellow-y golden gemstone the perfect gift for brightening up a typically chilly autumn month.
Citrine is known as a "healing quartz" - calming, soothing and comforting. Jewellery containing Citrine is said to radiate positive energy, bring calmness and warmth to the wearer.
For some, Citrine is said to spark imagination and encourage fresh beginnings. Citrine is also believed to soothe tempers and calm the wearer.
