Citrine is the birthstone for November. Its attractive color, plus the durability and affordability it shares with most other quartzes makes it the most popular yellow-to-orange gem. Citrine has been favored for thousands of years and used to be revered for its rarity. It was a popular gem used for jewellery by the Ancient Romans and then again in the 19th century. During the Art Deco period between World Wars I and II, large citrines were set in many prized pieces, including the elaborate Art Deco inspired jewelry pieces made for big Hollywood stars such as Greta Garbo and Joan Crawford. It was believed to promote success and good fortune due to its bright properties.
