Topaz: has some connection to Fire Energy and the energy of the sun. This energy is believed to have positive effects when channeled through Feng Shui.

How is this month November connected to previous October and next month December?
Being that the Zodiac signs do not align themselves with the traditional monthly Birthstones list individuals who are of either particular sign share Zodiac Stones but not Birthstones.
For example, someone who was born in early November and of the sign Scorpio will not have the same birthstones in common with an October born Scorpio. October born Scorpios will have separate Birthstones according to the month in which they were born, opal and tourmaline. The same situation occurs similarly to those who are born in November having the uniqueness of Topaz and Citrine to their particular birth month of November.
