Birth-mineral Earrings of the Month: Golden Citrine

.

may be a bit parital since my birthday is in November but Citrine has always been one of my favorite minerals. The golden color always catches my eye and I just want to touch it! ย Citrine is a mineral that is known for its cleansing and balancing properties. Wear this crystal when you are seeking personal balance, confidence and clarity.

November Birthstone: Topaz ย November Birth-mineral: Citrine

Thread the post through the bead and use the pliers to bend a small hook into the base of the post that will hold the bead on it. ย Now thread one of the earring hooks onto the post and to finish the earring, bend the post in half and tuck it into the bead.

    Absolutely gorgeous! I have the pliers and the stone, just need the wire now :) My Birthday is in November too, so I guess I might be a tad bias as-well!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You are so lucky to have citrine as your birthstone! Mine is peridot…can’t stand it :(. Cheers for the heads up on the earrings…I would need 7 of them and Steve would need 9! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Haha, that’s awesome…7! 9! wowsers! :)

      I’ve always thought peridot was pretty but I like pretty much anything that’s green. Your birth-mineral or crystal is sardonyx, maybe you’ll like that a bit more, the black version with blue swirls through it is really pretty.
