November Birthstone - Citrine

The birthstone for November is the lovely yellow coloured gemstone Citrine. Citrine is the yellow to orange variety of quartz and is one of the few yellow coloured gemstones that there is. These days totally natural citrine is fairly rare with most citrine actually being heat treated amethyst. The name Citrine is derived from the citron, a yellow coloured citrus fruit and the word citron actually means yellow in several languages. The anniversary stone for the 17th year of marriage, Citrine symbolises light-heartedness, joy and happiness.

The necklace pictured above is a Citrine and Sterling Silver Necklace by The Silver Bear, a fellow member of the Jet Team. Here are some more examples of citrine jewellery by the Jet Team:
