Welcome to MY birth month! YAY! November has two birthstones – topaz and citrine. I have to be honest, since I was a kid I’ve actually been super jealous of people with gorgeous gemstones like ruby or sapphire, and hated mine. I always called it the ‘ear wax’ birthstone because of its colour. It wasn’t until I started this project last year and got myself a citrine that I fell in love with this gemstone. Yellow is my favourite colour, so it’s only fitting that it be my birthstone too.
A variety of quartz, citrine is known as the ‘stone of success’ and is thought to promote creativity – hence why mine sits in the window of my studio, catching in as much sunshine as possible!
Hooray to fellow November babies!!
