November - Citrine (The 2020 Birthstone Collection)

November – Citrine

 

Citrine is a member of the Quartz group (which includes Amethyst). The name is a derivation of the French word, for the lemon yellow colour that natural Citrines exhibit.

 

In ancient times, Citrine was carried as a talisman against the venom of snakes and scorpions. Today they are known in some cultures as the merchant’s stone and are associated with success and prosperity.

 

Birthstones are not only fun and nostalgic, but throughout our lives they serve as a beautiful reminder of the month when we were born. The history behind birthstones is fascinating, with origins that date back to the Old Testament and Aaron’s breastplate, which featured 12 gemstones that represented the 12 tribes of Israel.

 

Over time, the 12 gems eventually became associated with the zodiac. Then, in 1912, the National Association of Jewelers established the modern list of birthstones we know today.
