The birthstone for the month of November is yellow topaz, which is believed by some to impart powers of healing and give the wearer strength. The Egyptians believed that topaz was colored by the golden glow of the mighty sun god, Ra. This made topaz a very powerful amulet that protected the faithful against harm. The most sought after of all natural topaz is called "imperial topaz". Its rich golden color with reddish and orange overtones is generally not enhanced by any kind of treatment. The most important deposit was found in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The fine golden-yellow imperial topaz is relatively scarce.
The astrological stone for Sagittarius is citrine; a golden quartz gemstone. Named from the French name for lemon,"citron," many citrines have a juicy lemon color. Citrine includes yellow to gold to orange-brown shades of transparent quartz. Although the darker, orange colors of citrine, sometimes called Madeira citrine after the color of the wine, has generally been the most valued color, in modern times, many people prefer the bright lemony shades which mix better with pastel colors. Citrine is affordable and available in a wide range of calibrated sizes and shapes, including very large sizes.
My experience with gemselect was awesome so far. I had a few questions about their website and making orders and they replied quickly and were happy to help. I have not received the items I ordered yet as I just ordered them this morning. Although, I truly feel I am going to be a very happy customer once I do receive my items. Gemselect guarantees all their items and have a great return policy just incase. The have a vast selection of all kinds of stones and not to mention their prices are much better than some other websites. Thanks Gemselect I’ll be doing business here from now on!
Great selection. Love the many learning features like articles and gem information. Prices competitive for natural stones. I do miss not having a selection of lab-made stones, CZ’s, etc, which are useful when price and cost are factors.
