This month’s birthstone is the Citrine (also known as yellow topaz). Yellows, Oranges & Browns galore, Citrine is the perfect Fall color. Citrine is a type of topaz and ranges in color from yellow, orange, yellow brown and other combos of these colors. Citrine is a sparkling, bright stone that is both captivating and affordable!

Citrine is a 7.0 on the Mohs Hardness scale. Citrine is the gemstone used to commemorate a married couple’s 11th and 13th wedding anniversaries.
