November's gemstone, Citrine, is as warm as the sun. The name Citrine comes from an old French word, "citrin", meaning lemon. One of the more rare forms of quartz, this gemstone ranges in colour from the palest yellow to a dark amber named Madeira because of its resemblance to the red wine.
This rare gem became more popular during the Romantic Period, when artisans often favoured these warm coloured gems to enhance gold jewelry. Citrine, like all forms of quartz, was believed to have magical powers and was worn as a talisman against evil thoughts and snake venom.
The word of God is our rare gem and Romans 12:2 tells us to be transformed, through the renewing of our minds. Why is this important? So that we can use the power of God's word to ward off mental attacks of the devil.
