If there’s ever been a stone that’s ideal for the wonder woman inside us all, this is it! Meet the citrine – a stunning yellow gem that’s linked to success, abundance and personal power.
Considered a joyful stone with a bright energy, the sparkler has been known to manifest success in all that the wearer sets his or her mind to. It is the birthstone of lucky November babies, guiding them towards success in all that they do.
Andrew Mazzone said the citrine’s bright yellow-orange hues are a popular choice for jewellery pieces, with colours ranging from a light yellow to a brownish-orange.
“The stone is a really durable option for everyday wear, so we see it in a number of larger pieces too, such as statement rings, pendants and earrings,” he said.
We’ve listed some of our favourite picks below:
The citrine was very popular during the Art Deco era, where people wore it in elaborate pieces to add to their outfits as a fashion statement.
The name comes from ‘citron’, the French word for ‘lemon’, describing the lemon-like shades in the stone.
Many people actually refer to the gem as the ‘success stone’ for its healing properties. It is said to enhance mental clarity, confidence and will power, while decreasing depression and self-destructive tendencies.
It also does not absorb any ‘negative energies’ – much like a true #girlboss, who doesn’t let anyone get her down!
As well as providing good fortune and luck to its wearer, the citrine is known for generosity – sharing the prosperity and goodness with those close to its wearer.
It also happens to be the traditional wedding anniversary gift for the 13th wedding anniversary… Who said number 13 brought bad luck?
If you ask us, the citrine really is the ultimate stone – regardless of whether you’re a November baby.
