November - Citrine / Topaz 

November can choose between two different gemstones that are often mistaken for each other due to the wide range of color in which they come!

Topaz – Pure topaz is completely colorless, but it can become tinted by impurities to take on any color of the rainbow! Because of the variety in color, it can often be mistaken for other stones. The most popular color is the vibrant orange, but blue topaz has been increasing over the last several years in popularity. Topaz is a soothing stone that has been said to calm tempers, cure madness and eliminate nightmares. Mostly produced in Brazil, it can also be found in Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Russia, Australia, Nigeria, Germany, Mexico and the United States. Measuring 8 on the Mohs scale, it is a rather hard and durable gem, but can be prone to chipping or cracking if not correctly cut.

Citrine - Citrine is a variety of quartz that range from pale yellow to brownish orange in color. It takes its name from the citron fruit because of these lemon-inspired shades.  Citrine is sometimes known as the “healing quartz” for its ability to comfort, soothe and calm. Citrine is mostly mined in Brazil, but can also be found in Spain, Bolivia, France, Russia, Madagascar and the Untied States. With a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale, citrine is good for everyday wear.
