Drawing from the French word "citron", lemon, a citrine gemstone
emulates the vitality and freshness of the vivid yellow fruit, as a
symbol for prosperity, success, and imagination. Burnished in
shades of yellow, from clear glistening yellows to flaming oranges,
they are thought of as gemmologist's gold. Pale stones remind
Cassandra of white waterlilies, the brighter yellows of tumbling
Banksiae roses, and the golden richer hues of autumnal dahlias.
Natural citrine can be found in Brazil, Spain, and Madagascar. As
November's birthstone, they are said to protect against evil
thoughts, stripping away your negativity with a new-found zest for
creativity and exciting pursuits.
