Citrine is sometimes mistaken for topaz (and is sometimes even referred to as “gold topaz”), but it has little in common with its yellowish-orange look-alike other than its color.

Citrine is a type of quartz and is found fairly often in nature as compared to many other gemstones. Since this mineral is rather abundant, the citrine that makes its way into jewelry such as citrine and diamond rings usually exhibits very few flaws. Like many other types of quartz, citrine is resistant to scratches, which means that citrine and diamond rings can take a little bit of a beating without looking worse for the wear.
It’s not surprising that Citrine is the birthstone for the month of November, as it brings welcome sunshine to an often gray month. However, it adds an eye-catching touch of light any time of year.
