On my handy-dandy birthstone list, November's stones are listed as: Topaz and Topaz Quartz (Citrine). Similarly, Wikipedia tells me that, "November's birthstones are the topaz (particularly, yellow) and the citrine." So it would seem that citrine is our #1 November birthstone choice, but that there's also some room left for interpretation. All the better for those with November birthdays, as this gives you a serious rainbow of options! But don't think you that you have to be born in November to enjoy the beautiful array of variety that topaz and quartz present... it's a free-for-all (not literally, unfortunately!) when it comes to these gemstones! I've selected some of my favorite Jane Taylor pieces that showcase quartz and topaz, but this is only the tip of the iceberg!
