CITRINE & TOPAZ: For Healing and Prosperity
People born in the cool climes of November are blessed with two ruling Birthstones, the spectacular Topaz and the gentle, golden-hued Citrine. November-born can be defined as wonderfully creative, attractive and highly emotional people.
They like to play fair, have little tolerance for nonsense, are extremely loyal and work is a top priority for them. However while their actions may be clean and honest they are also notoriously private and are very prone to be misunderstood.
About the Gemstones:
Known for its ability to exhibit a spectacular array of colours, Topaz with its golden glow and shine is said to represent Ra, the Egyptian Sun God. Highly revered by the ancient Egyptians, this gemstone was used in the making of amulets and talismans worn usually by noblemen and kin of royalty.
It was also believed to control heat, and was said to possess the power to cool boiling water – thought to be as metaphor for its ability to calm the rage in its wearer and giving him clarity of thought in difficult situations.
The ancient Romans are also believed to associate Topaz with the power of the Sun God and Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system.
Contrary to the fire and passion associated with the Topaz, the Citrine is a lot more gentle in its quality and disposition. As a Healing Quartz, it is said to signify peace, prosperity, healing, creativity and loyalty in man.
While the topaz is said to signify strength, tenacity, dedication and resilience, it is also said to have the power to balance emotions and thoughts. The topaz is also believed to cure blood disorders, insomnia, gout, tuberculosis and control anger bouts arising out of insanity.
Often used to enhance spirituality, topaz is also prized for its ability to promote wisdom and bestow clear thought upon its wearer. For these very reasons, it was often used in the making of crowns and jewellery worn by rulers, kings and members of royalty.
The golden-hued Citrine is a healing stone by definition with the power to focus mental clarity, cure ailments related to the heart, kidney and liver and stimulate the memory.
Often found in colours ranging from light yellow to deep orange these gemstones are believed to bless their wearer with hope, strength, energy, vitality, success and good fortune.
