Happy Birthday to everyone born in November!
Like October, November is another month with two birthstones, Topaz and Citrine.
Pure topaz is actually colorless but is generally found in a variety of colors due to impurities. Shown here is a beautiful blue topaz and diamond ring. Topaz is a very hard gemstone but should be protected from hard strikes as it can split. You can clean with a mild dish soap.
Citrine is a bright yellow to orange gemstone as shown here in this citrine and diamond ring. Darker brownish varieties can be heated to permanently change the darker color to a bright yellow or orange. With its brilliant color and affordability, this gemstone is perfect for all types of jewelry. Clean with a mild dish soap.
