October Birthstone

October is a beautiful month, full of golden leaves, orange pumpkins, and red apples. Many of my friends love autumn more than any other time of year, especially if they get to bundle up in new fashions. A special month deserves a special birthstone, and lucky October gets two. 

Opal is the traditional October birthstone. Popular as ornamentation and as mystical healing stones, opals reflect rainbow colors, the fascinating patterns changing constantly. Get a soft shimmer with the white and pastel gems, or go bold with the bright orange of fire opal. October also has a modern birthstone, the pink tourmaline. This gem's color has been called autumn rose, and the pretty stone mixes well with other colored gemstones. It also matches fall's darker fashions.
