Known for its yellow to red-orange completion, this month’s birthstone is citrine! Much quartz that is mined does not tend to be citrine, but rather other natural stones that are pale yellows and smoky tones. To produce citrine, certain quartz can be heated on site at their retrieval mine. Oftentimes available in large sizes, citrine can be cut into dramatic and intricate designs that are not available with other stones. Requiring no extra care or upkeep, this is the accepted jewel for the 13th year of marriage.
