    November Birthstone – Citrine

    The birthstone for November is the Citrine. The warm, fiery colors that exude from this precious stone are off the Van Gogh painting of the sunflowers.

    Since the beginning of time, man has dug within the earth to find useful tools for it’s survival. In these earlier times, there was a greater connection with the planet and its gifts and the cosmic world. With each advancement and achievement of the human species, we developed tools to dig deeper within the Earth’s crust. At one point we began to dig for treasures or sometimes they were come upon accidentally. With every unearthing of these treasures and gemstones, they were believed to emit a power to its discoverer. They were thought to offer healing and magical powers, strength or protection. Most of these treasures today represent the birthstones for each month of the year in the calendar we are familiar with today, the Gregorian or Western Calendar. As time went on, each stone was believed to represent a specific time or season of the year.

    Citrine is very scarce, which could be the reason that it is not mentioned until the first century B.C. The Romans were noted as the first to wear it, where they would fashion the stone into a style that is referred to, cabochon. For this style, the citrine first would be polished to a most brilliant shine and then the pieces of the unfaceted stone would be fashioned into their jewels. During the Romantic Period, artisans would utilize the warmth of the citrine to enhance the color gold jewelry.
