November - Topaz, Citrine

The Topaz and Citrine are the birthstones for November.

While the Topaz comes in a variety of colours, the Imperial Topaz is the most precious and it is an intense golden orange-yellow colour. The Precious Topaz, in the deep, rich yellow colour is the birthstone. Interestingly, the Citrine only comes in an orange colour, and is a part of the Quartz family. These two stones ought not to get mixed up as the Topaz is available in a wide range of colours, not just orange like the Citrine.
