November Birthstone: Citrine
Citrine is one of the most popular gemstones around right now. It is an undoubtedly beautiful stone with a rich yellow-gold color putting it at the top end of value within the quartz family. The name ‘citrine’ comes from the French word for lemon, “citron.” Citrine has been treasured for thousands of years and was prized by royalty during the Victorian era.
