Birth Stone for November
Birthstones are simply gems that are associated with each month of the year. They are often worn as jewellery and are thought to bring luck and protection to those who wear them.
Birthstones date back to ancient times and were believed to have special powers. There are two types of birthstone charts: traditional and modern.
The traditional chart was inspired by the 12 gemstones on the breastplate of the High Priest of the Israelites in the Bible.
The modern birthstone chart was created by the National Association of Jewellers, and features more gem options than the traditional list.
November has two different birthstones: topaz and citrine.
November Birthstone - Topaz
Topaz is a golden yellow gem that symbolises love and affection. Many believe that topaz provides strength and intellect to those who wear it.
This gem is represented in histories from around the world. Europeans believed that topaz could protect the wearer from spells and anger. In India, people believed that topaz would bring those who wore it a long life.
November Birthstone - Citrine
Citrine is another of November’s birthstones. Similar to topaz, this gem comes in various shades of yellow.
This gem has been popular since ancient times, with similar powers to that of topaz. Many believed that citrine could soothe tempers.
Citrine is also said to provide luck and fortune to the wearer and brings success and clarity. Bring on abundance!
