November's Birthstones - When yellow steals the show ... !

Happy birthday to you, November child. Your birthday flower, the Chrysanthemum or gold flower, belongs to the aster family and meant 'you are a wonderful friend' in Victorian times. A lovely message to remember and to use instead of the European idea that associates the flower with funerals.

Yellow Topaz and Citrine are your Birthstones and are sunny gemstones. Topaz ranges from colorless to dazzling orange, from golden yellow to pink & purple and comes in the most gorgeous popular blues. Citrine quartz is not less fascinating, but be aware of the fact that through heat treatment amethyst is sometimes turned into Citrine. It goes from the palest of yellows to dark brownish orange.

While Citrine is said to bring hope, warmth and energy to replenish health, Topaz will restore the balance of emotions. As health and emotions are intermingled, I hope you receive both.

A very happy birthday to you ... with http://dunebeads.com/en/15x22-mm-medium-to-large-cut-nuggets-gemstone-beads-citrine-natural-rough !

With drear November's fog and snow,
Should prize the topaz's amber hue,
Emblem of friends and lovers true.
