November birthstone: citrine

November birthstone: citrine

As the November sun fades quickly into cold early-winter nights, we look for warmth and light to carry us into the winter months. So it should come as no surprise that citrine, the birthstone of November has all the warmth and yellow sunshine of the sun itself.

With its sunny colour, citrine is said to symbolise happiness, abundance and generosity.


The November birthstone takes its name from the French word “citrin,” meaning lemon. Full of light, this sparkling gem was once thought to protect the wearer against various evils—from snake venom to wicked thoughts!
