November's birthstone, Topaz, is as warm field of sunflowers. Both Scorpios and Sagittarians born in the month of November share the Topaz as a birthstone. One of the more rare forms of quartz, this gemstone ranges in color from the palest yellow to a dark amber. A sunny bouquet bursting with bright and warm colors would definitely bring a smile to November birthday face.
The name "topaz" is derived the Old French “Topace” and Latin “Topazus” and from the ancient name of the Greek island of St. John's, from which topaz was originally mined. The most prized color of topaz is called Imperial topaz after the Russian Czars of the 1800s and features a magnificent orange body color with pinkish undertones. Also known as precious topaz is the symbol of friendship and is the state gemstone for the state of Utah.
