October Birthstones: Opal and Tourmaline
Welcome to the month of October! After a long awaited 10 months, we’re here: in the midst of Football, Fall, Halloween and cooler weather on the horizon. What better way to celebrate the beginning of the month than to introduce the birthstones of October: Opal and Tourmaline.
Opal is the national gemstone of Australia who produces 97% of the world’s supply of opal.
Tourmaline is a crystal that’s compounded with one or a couple common elements. While Tourmaline is considered a semi-precious stone, you can find tourmaline gems in a number of colors—from pink, to orange, to a ‘watermelon’ color combining a light green and pink.
While both Opal and Tourmaline are in higher demand during the month of October, there are some great last-minute gift options for your loved one with an October birthday!
This amazing Opal ring is an awesome and rather inexpensive last minute gift option for your favorite person celebrating an October birthday.
If tourmaline is your poison and you prefer to recognize that as the October birth stone, check out this amazing drop necklace from famed luxury designer Tiffany & Co.
