The November Birthstone: Topaz and Citrine

Get ready November! Cooler weather, for most of us anyway, changing season, bonfires and falling leaves and all that fun!

November’s birthstone is the topaz, which comes in a wide variety of colors. Most people associate dark yellow with it, when in reality, there’s a whole rainbow of topaz shades. My favorite is the blue topaz, a truly beautiful pure clear blue gemstone.

This spiritual stone, with many strong symbolic properties, is indigenous to several countries including Brazil, the USA, Myanmar, Japan, and others.

Another stone to represent the November child is citrine, a cheerful clear yellow stone with a warm color said to be a gift from the sun and believed to be a healing gemstone. I often include citrine in my holistic pieces to help aid the healing process and to symbolize hope and cheer to the wearer.


Off on a Whim has a stock of citrine stones as well as some blue and pink topaz stones on hand for special requests.
