Lifestyle - Birthstones For November November 17 2017, 0 Comments
Hey lovelies, November already wow where has this year gone...
November for me, always has a feeling of change, the seasons moving, the weather getting colder, the nights drawing in, for me it has always been a time of magic ( getting closer to christmas yay ) and a time for new beginnings and letting go of the past, I always do my last north star business session in November, where I plan what still needs to be done to end the year, and I plan out my goals for the new year.
This months birthstones Citrine & Topaz fit beautifully for starting afresh and soothing one's soul, both can be similar in colour ranging from the oranges of autumn, to bright sunshine yellow, this makes them easily confused, but there are clear differences in both...
Citrine has very striking golden, yellow, sometimes burnt umber tones and hues, and has been worn and adored since ancient times, and gained mass popularity in the 18th and 19th centuries, the name citrine comes from the french word "Citrin" meaning lemon, the ancient romans used it to make beautiful jewellery, and intaglio work and some roman priests had the gemstones made into rings.
The greeks carved images into the stones, and others used citrine for luck, as it holds a resemblance to topaz, many believed that this precious quartz gemstone, held the same healing properties as topaz ( which is a calming & prosperous stone )
Citrine is now a very popular stone in its own right, as it is thought to encourage imagination, creativity, wealth, and positive energy.
Topaz has long been one of my favourite gemstones, I just love the clarity of the blue colour and the soothing sensation it always gives me, but you can also get topaz in various other colours from yellow to blue.
Topaz is well known for it's soothing and healing energy, and it can also help to inspire creativity.
If you love your healing crystals, you cannot go wrong with either of these ones in your wardrobe.
