All About November's Citrine Birthstone

Fun fact: citrine is named after the citron fruit because of its lemon-inspired shades. Citrine is November’s second birthstone, a variety of quartz that ranges from pale yellow to brownish orange in color. Citrine has been referred to as the “healing quartz” for its ability to comfort, soothe and calm. It is believed to release negative feelings, spark imagination, and even attract wealth and prosperity. The largest supplier of citrine is Brazil. Shop citrine jewelry here.

"Love this place! There is no better selection anywhere for beautiful, one-of-a-kind jewelry. You have to see it to believe it! I am a repeat customer and tell all of my friends about them. Mais and Troy are who I typically work with. Their customer service is incredible. The store has 6-7 jewelers onsite and can do beautiful custom work without paying premium prices. They have loose stones of all shapes and sizes that they bring out to show you how the setting would look. We worked with Mais for my engagement ring, wedding band, and my husband’s wedding band. I worked with Troy for earrings and a watch. I had a girlfriend in town from MI that I took there who has been searching jewelry stores all over for an antique looking diamond and sapphire engagement ring. She had almost given up hope. She flew in to FL and I took her to Gold & Diamond Source. We worked with Troy and in less than 20 minutes, he helped my friend find the ring of her dreams. Highly recommend! The owners, Steve and Julie, also give back to the community. They are the BEST!? — Jessica T. on Facebook
