November babies are lucky enough to have two beautiful birthstones, topaz and citrine. For centuries, the two gemstones have been confused since they have a fairly similar appearance. However, there a few distinct differences between the two November birthstones.
Citrine, said to be a gift from the sun, ranges in color from lemon yellow to bright orangey brown. It is also said to be the “healing quartz” for its ability to comfort, soothe and calm. Citrine is one of the most popular and affordable gemstones, making it a great choice for big, bold, statement pieces. Topaz is also considered to be a soothing stone that can calm tempers and eliminate nightmares. Unlike citrine, topaz has a wider range of colors and is offered in shades of yellow, brown, green, blue, red and pink. The most popular color of topaz is Imperial topaz, which features a vibrant orange hue with pink undertones. Both gemstones are fairly durable and are available in a wide range of sizes and shapes.
Topaz and citrine’s beautiful colors make exceptional centerpieces for rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. If you’re looking for the perfect birthday gift for the November baby in your life, or maybe just a special holiday present, view some of our favorite November birthstone selections below.
