Its warm color is said to be a gift from the sun, is the birthstone for those born in November, and the gemstone that commemorates the 13th wedding anniversary: the Citrine

 

This golden gemstone is the perfect one to brighten up a chilly November day. Citrine has been a popular decorative gemstone since ancient times. Its name comes from the Old French word for lemon, citron.

 

Citrine is said to be rare in nature. This happy gemstone ranges in colors from an earthy, deep, brownish or reddish orange, to a honey yellow.

 

Some have called citrine a calming, soothing and comforting gemstone; while others have said it sparks imagination and encourages fresh beginnings and prosperity. Citrine is also known as the merchant’s stone, and is associated with success and wealth.

 

Once thought to provide protection against snake venom and evil thoughts, the Egyptians used the yellow gems as talismans, while the ancient Greeks carved iconic images into them to make rock crystal ornaments, and Roman priests made them into rings. Scottish clans even adorned the handles of swords and daggers with citrine for decorative purposes, but also because the stone was said to provide protection. 

 

The most abundant sources of natural citrine are found in Bolivia, Madagascar, Mexico, Spain and Uruguay.
