Opal and Tourmaline
October Birthstone

October's Birthstones: Opal and Tourmaline. The 14th and 8th Anniversary stones.

What do Australia, Brazil, Mexico, and Nevada have in common?  Aside from beautiful weather, gorgeous scenery, and enviable sunsets, they are all large providers of one of this month's birthstones: the opal. Those blessed with blonde tresses should pay special attention to this gem, as it was once believed to possess the ability to extend the life of that particular hair coloring.  Whether or not the legend from the Middle Ages holds any truth, women of all hues can benefit from the opal's mesmerizing, iridescent colors. Types of opals include boulder, white, fire, and the coveted black.

Tourmaline, October's other birthstone, provides a wealth of jewelry opportunities to the discerning customer. Their relative durability, distinctive three-sided prism effect, and diverse coloring and sizing options make this stone a prime choice for placement within earrings, necklaces, and any other setting one desires. The right combination of tourmaline accessories can make any outfit shine as brightly as the gems themselves!
