November is another month which has two birthstones, topaz and citrine. It is quite interesting that the month's two birthstones closely resemble each other enough to confuse many people. Citrine and topaz are one of our staffer's favorite gemstones. It could be because they're her birthstones but she assures us that if she was born in July, she would still have these gems in her jewelry box.

All yellow stones were classified as topaz throughout history. However, today we know that nearly most of those stones were not topaz at all. Although the stone comes in every color imaginable -- due to its ability to take on any color impurities -- the most valuable color is a burnished orange hue with a pinkish undertone. If you're set on owning a beautiful topaz gemstone, head down to Brazil, for they have the best quality topaz on the market.

What happens when you cross a gemstone with a piece of citrus? Citrine! The stone's lemony hues reminded people of citrus and thus, a name was born. Funny enough however, that the yellow hue is extremely rare in nature, and as a result, most yellow citrines are heat treated to attain their color. The stone's intensity and durability has many people gravitating to it plus with the purported healing qualities, you can't afford not to wear one. Fortunately Brazil has quality citrines as well, so you are only a flight away from owning this beautiful birthstone.
