November Birthstones

November Birthstones

Citrine is the most widely accepted birthstone for November.

Citrine is a wonderful energy clearing crystal. It brings the positive energy of sunshine into your life and home. The birthstone for those born in November and the perfect crystal for the solar plexus chakra.

The majority of citrine sold is actually heat treated amethyst. Amethyst is much more abundant and when heated, it turns a yellow/orange color. Big amethyst and citrine are forms of quartz so you will still get the healing energy from heat treated amethyst. Natural citrine is much paler, less orange and often combined with smokey quartz minerals to make smoky citrine. Natural citrine is significantly more rare than heat treated amethyst and that is reflected in the price.

Golden topaz is an alternate birthstone for November. Topaz releases blocked energy and helps with moving forward in life. Topaz may resemble quartz on the surface but it has a different molecular structure and chemical composition. It is also far more rare than quartz.
