The yellow stones have that
mellow, warm tone that seems to have captured the last glow of autumn.
Like golden Rhine wine or sparkling Madeira, heavy and sweet. Citrine
gemstones shimmer and bring a hint of sunshine to those dull November
The name is derived from the
color - the yellow of the lemon - , although the most
sought-after stones have a clear, radiant yellowish to brownish red.
Like all crystal quartz, citrine has a good harness and is thus, to a
large extent, insensitive to scratches. Citrine is one of most
affordable gemstones and plentiful in nature and is found frequently in
Brazil, Bolivia, and Spain.
Topaz is also a November
birthstone: Often confused with citrine quartz (yellow) and smoky quartz
(brown), Topaz and quartz are actually separate and created from
unrelated minerals. Topaz comes in a variety of colors from yellow,
pink, purple, orange and
the most popular, blue.
