October Opals

Described by the Ancient Romans as the “Queen of All Gems”, opal is a chameleon encompassing the essence of every gemstone in one. Opal’s name means to see a change of color, which this “phenomenal” gemstone shows in unusual optical effects of shifting spectral hues described as “play of color”.

An October birthstone, opal is favored as a gift for the 14th wedding anniversary. Opal is revered as a symbol of hope, fidelity and purity. A gem of positive transformation, opal reveals the colorful attributes of those who wear it.

Opal occurs in several types; the most common is white opal with vibrant pastel flashes. Black opal has a blue, gray or black body with more dramatic color play. Boulder opal is black opal with some of the ironstone in which it occurs.

October Tourmaline

Perhaps the most diverse gemstone available, tourmaline possesses a dazzling array of colors. Moreover, there are bi- colored and tri-colored tourmalines where two or more colors appear side by side in the same gemstone.

An October birthstone, tourmaline is also the chosen gift for the 8th wedding anniversary. Tourmaline is considered a gemstone of enlightenment and resolution. Believed to foster compassion, composure, and reflection, tourmaline reveals the most captivating characteristics of those who wear it.
