Ranging in color from deep shade of golden yellow, brownish yellow or orange this semi-precious gemstone is the birthstone associated with the month of November.

Its pale yellow color gives this crystal its name, Citrine, coming from the French citron, meaning lemon. But apart from its literal meaning, it also has a deep spiritual meaning.

The spiritual meaning of Citrine is its yellow hues symbolizing the spiritual qualities of joy, abundance, and transmutation.
