November. One of the birthstones of the month is Citrine. A member of the Quartz family, the name Citrine comes from the French word citron which means lemons. An interesting fact, much of the commercial citrine sold on the market is actually heat-treated Amethyst! Not the prettiest of the gemstones, but once you learn to love citrine you learn to love the fire held within the stone! The stone has been used as far back as 300 B.C.
