Citrine, November’s birthstone, ranges in color from happy yellow to royal orange to glorious red. Ever since its discovery, citrine is valued for its inviting beauty, and recognized healing powers.
Citrine’s ancient history is tied in with yellow topaz. The two are oftentimes confused due to their similar hues. However, they have their differences. Citrine’s hardness on the Mohs scale is 7 and topaz is 8. Citrine is sometimes treated to be enhanced for the color desired, and is in the quartz family, and is a sister stone to amethyst.
The Romans wore citrine pendants and citrine rings for protection. Today, citrine jewelry adorns many actresses of Hollywood, inspired by the golden age's Greta Garbo.
Citrine's timeless beauty has sustained. The shades of red, orange, and yellow are perfect for summer and autumn, and since every citrine is so different, you can fall in love with several of them, and match them to different occasions.
