Topaz comes in a variety of colors. It is often confused with quartz, although they are made up of different minerals. The archetype of a prized topaz is called Imperial Topaz, which embodies an orange color with pink undertones. This stone also comes in shades of yellow, pink, purple, orange and blue. It is said to bring wisdom to its wearer as well as healing properties. Although it requires special care and protection from harsh water, it is a gorgeous piece for any wearer.

Citrine is the second birthstone for November. It comes in tones of gold – from light yellow to a darker burnt orange. It has been said to bring health, hope, energy and warmth to its beholder. Citrine is also thought to protect its owner from evil thoughts and words. It is popularly found in Brazil, Bolivia and Spain and is very affordable.
