November's Birthstone | Topaz
What is the birthstone for November?
Treasured for thousands of years, the beautiful topaz is the birthstone for November.
Did you know? The name ‘topaz’ derives from the ancient Greek name for St. John’s Island in the Red Sea, where lots of yellow stones were famously mined there. Throughout much of the stone’s history, topaz was thought to only come in yellow, so it was the name given to any yellow gemstones – even if they weren’t actually topaz!
Coming in shades of brown, green, red or pink as well as the ‘original’ yellow, blue topaz is the most popular when it comes to jewellery. The ancient Egyptians and Romans believed this gemstone had the power to protect and heal.
What is the birthstone for Scorpio?
