Citrine - A Member of the Quartz Family

As the birthstone for November, Citrine will certainly be in high demand this coming month. A member of the quartz family, the stone comes in a range of colors from pale yellow to brownish red making it suitable for a variety of styles and tastes when it comes to lovers of fine jewelry. Its history, however, has been intertwined with Yellow Topaz as the two stones are virtually identical to the untrained eye. Citrine is much more affordable though, meaning that those on a budget can still purchase a stunning accessory without spending a fortune in the process.

Natural Occurring Citrine is Quite Rare

Although this yellow form of quartz can be found in nature, it is quite rare. In fact, most of the Citrine jewelry sold today uses amethyst and smoky quartz which has been turned into Citrine by a burning process. This alters the stone’s internal chemistry, creating a more appealing yellow color which can then be used to create some beautiful pieces of jewelry. These artificial stones look almost identical to their natural counterparts and it requires an expert eye to truly tell the difference. As such, the overall appearance and style will not suffer as a result of using these burnt gemstones.

 

Citrine - The Gemstone of Success

Since its discovery, citrine has gained a reputation as a success stone. In the past, it was known as the ‘merchant’s stone’ as vendors used to place it within their money boxes in order to boost their sales and profits. As well as enhancing financial prosperity, the stone is also said to bolster other kinds of success, providing an overall boost to the owner’s lifestyle. As such, it is the perfect gift for those born in November, especially those who are looking for a way to gain some extra benefits by wearing a beautiful piece of gemstone jewelry. As well as promoting success, Citrine is also said to have a myriad of other attributes. When it comes to physical healing, the stone can cleanse the kidney and the bladder, alleviate eye problems, increase circulation and remove toxins from the blood. Psychologically, it has also been known to improve self esteem and self confidence. As such it can be used for those with depression and other destructive tendencies to improve their lifestyle. For the November baby, this is truly a stone which can enhance their life and lead to a whole host of positive results.

As such, those born in November will be able to find a piece that suits their personality and style with no trouble at all. This is great news for those celebrating their birthday soon as it means that they can receive a stunning piece of Citrine jewelry that will also provide them with a whole host of advantages to their mental, physical and financial well-being.
