November Birthstone Highlight

Individuals born in November can choose between two sunny gemstones to brighten up the month! Both of November’s birthstones, citrine & topaz, are fairly abundant and affordably priced, even in large sizes.

Citrine & Topaz overview:

  • Citrine is a variety of quartz, which has been used in jewelry for thousands of years
  • It's most popular shade is an earthy deep brownish or reddish orange, and the finest citrine color is saturated yellow to reddish orange free of brownish tints
  • Citrine is often mistaken for topaz, but quartz and topaz are actually unrelated mineral species
  • Topaz features a variety of colors, from yellow, orange, light blue, violet, pink, etc.
  • It’s also given to celebrate 19th wedding anniversaries, and certain types (blue and Imperial, respectively) acknowledge 4th and 23rd wedding anniversaries, as well.

Caring for & cleaning these gemstones:

  • They can be safely cleaned with warm, soapy water
  • Ultrasonic cleaners are usually safe except when the stone is dyed or treated by fracture filling
  • Warm, soapy water is the best method for cleaning topaz
  • It's important to avoid steam or ultrasound
