November brings an unavoidable chill to New England with its arrival. As we creep ever closer to winter, the bright colors of autumn begin to fade. Leaves are steadily abandoning their trees, but there’s still a vivid punch of color out there! November’s birthstone is represented in glimmering citrine, one of the most sought after yellow-to-orange gemstones in the industry, making this the perfect gem to match with the colors of November.

Citrine is a variety of quartz, infused with iron to give it that yellow-orange color. As part of the same family as amethyst, citrine and amethyst are actually capable of combining, forming lovely ametrine. This unique gemstone makes absolutely stunning jewelry, featuring a gentle fade between purple and yellow tones.

Most market citrine receives heat treatment to bring out the vivid orange and yellow tones of the gemstone. Citrine ranges in shades of brown, orange, and yellow. Citrine can even lean towards red, earthy tones, so there’s plenty of color options to choose from.

Because citrine is a variety of quartz, the gemstone’s durability and affordability make it one of the most sought after yellow/orange gemstones on the market. Citrine rates at 7 on the Mohs Hardness scale, making this gemstone a delightful and durable choice for all jewelry types.
