Citrine, the gemstone that shines so bright is the birthstone for November.
Named for the French word lemon, Citrine is a bright golden gemstone. When we first see it, the primary impression is the feeling and power of the sun. Imagine being recharged by the sun. It is known as a stone of abundance as it helps manifest and attract wealth, success and prosperity. Now who wouldn’t be attracted to that? Historically it is known as the “Merchant’s Stone ” because of its ability to manifest energy and wealth. It is also known to cultivate inner calm and wisdom. With all these attributes, you don’t have to be a November baby to fall in love with Citrine.
Citrine is a member of the Quartz family which is linked to the solar plexus chakra. This chakra lies just beneath the heart and aids in balancing our intentions- ‘you get back what you give’. Citrine starts out as clear quartz and when introduced to heat and some iron, it becomes yellow. The more heat, over time, the more golden the gemstone.
Sometimes a faceted Citrine is used in jewelry design as a less costly substitute for Topaz. We have chosen to create this one special necklace using the radiant gemstone – described below by its designer, Beth.
“A chunky necklace that is bold, bright and fresh. It’s minimalist design showcases the glorious gemstone.
A length of silver plate chain suspends amorphic citrine nuggets that vary in golden color from light yellow to deep amber. Dimension and texture are created by the two woven strands of semi-precious stones that fall to and fro, while golden yellow crystal briolettes are interspersed for extra sparkle…”
