Citrine is the birthstone for the month of November. The name derives from the Latin citrina meaning "yellow" and is also the origin of the word "citron". The stone can range in color from a pale yellow to brown. A member of the Quartz family, citrine is closely related to amethyst, sometimes the two are even found together in the same crystal, called ametrine.
Citrine, as well as other stones within the Quartz family, has a 7 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. Citrine jewelry can be brittle for everyday wear, however these stones bring beautiful color and are safe to wear in earrings and necklace designs.
This sunny stone is a great mirror to the golden leaves this time of year! This Lightyear Pendant is one of many Rebecca's designs offering a citrine. If you would like to incorporate the citrine, or any other birthstone, into a meaningful and one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry piece, check out our new Family Jewelry Collection for many design ideas.
