Happy Birthday to everyone born in October!
October babies actually have two birthstones, Opal and Tourmaline.
Opal is a symbol of hope, fidelity, and purity. This gemstone has the ability to diffract light exhibiting every color in the visible spectrum. Opal is a soft gemstone and should be handled with care to avoid scratching and chipping.
Tourmaline was believed to encourage artistic intuition and to express every mood. This gemstone has a variety of colors. It is common to find Tourmaline crystals that are multicolored. Avoid exposure to harsh abrasives and strong chemical solvents.
