November birthday? Joslin’s has exciting news for you – it’s time to celebrate with the amber hued gem, Citrine!

Citrine is a beautiful golden stone sure to enchant your loved one.

Citrine is a variety of quartz that ranges from pale yellow to brownish orange in color. It takes its name from the citron fruit because of these lemon-inspired shades.

As early as 1385, the name “citrine” was used to refer to yellow gemstones. People then believed that citrine could calm a temper and manifest prosperity. To leverage these powers, Egyptians used citrine to create talismans. The Greeks carved images into them, and Roman priests adorned their fingers with them.

In the mid-18th century, amethyst and smoky quartz were found to produce golden citrine hues by heating the gems. The gems then became more affordable. Today, citrine remains one of the most affordable and frequently purchased yellow gemstones.

Joslin’s carries some of the most beautiful citrine stones that would be perfect as a pendant, ring, or even in a charm bracelet! Show that special someone how much you care – or treat yourself to a bit of sunshine! Either way, Joslin’s can’t wait to help you design your next golden jeweled idea!
