Anyone born in the month of November has Topaz as their birthstone – thought to be the symbol of love and affection.
This beautiful stone is most commonly found in shades of yellow, amber gold or pinkish orange. Imperial Topaz is the most precious and is orange with dazzling pink undertones running through it. Topaz can also be found in blue, this is most often not a natural blue color which is extremely rare, but has been enhanced.
Ancient Romans and Egyptians often linked this gem to the sun god because of its golden color, and believed that it gives the wearer the power to protect and heal, and also brings them warmth and fortune.
Citrine, a similar looking stone is also considered a birthstone for those born in November and the vast selection of jewelry items that include either a topaz or citrine would make either of these stones a perfect gift.
