Tis' the season where the leaves change color, you cozy up to a loved one and, most importantly, bring out your favorite fall accessories. Topaz and citrine are THE hit stones of the season and a must in every closet. As the birthstone of November, topaz and citrine have vibrant tones and come in a variety of shades and colors. From royal blues to deep sunset oranges, these jewels make the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe.
Topaz originates from the Greek word Topazios, a small Greek island off the Red Sea. Many believed the name originated from the Sanskrit word 'tapas,' meaning fire. The stone can be found in modern day Brazil, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Russia. The Ancient Romans believed topaz to be a stone of great healing power while the Greeks believed it to be a source of strength and vigor.
Citrine is very similar to topaz in terms of its variety of warm hues but is a yellow member of the quartz family. Natural citrine can be found in modern day Russia, Madagascar and France. In Ancient Greek times, citrine was used a decorative element for armor and jewelry. Some even considered citrine to hold the warmth of the sun, burning out negative energy and fears.
