October birthstone

Like March, the month of October also has two gemstones associated as birthstones. These two stones are tourmaline and opal. With two gemstones, each of which is available in a variety of shades, those born in October have a great variety to pick from. Tourmaline can come in a variety of colors depending on the trace elements of different minerals inside it. Opal also has diffraction properties and can reflect different shades of color to the viewer.

Tourmaline has been found and mined in several countries of the world, like China, USA, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Germany etc. Sri Lanka also owes the origin of the name tourmaline, which is derived from the two Sinhalese words tura and mali which stand for ‘stone of mixed colors’. A delightful story about the different shades of the tourmaline gemstone is that it was on its way up from deep within the earth’s crust when it came across a multicolored rainbow, and thus got its wide array of colors. The benefits of wearing tourmaline are protection from toxins, pollutants and even negative thoughts. Additionally, it has the unique property of displaying magnetic properties when electrically charged.

Opal reflects several different colors, and in the Middle Ages, it was believed to possess the powers of all the gemstones whose colors it reflected. For several decades, Australia was the world’s leading producer of opal, and subsequently opal deposits have also been found in Ethiopia. Opal stones display a variety of colors but they are mostly referred to by any one of their background colors of black or white. The wearer of an opal gemstone is said to get good fortune.

Because of the attractive looks and beneficial properties, opal and tourmaline have been used in jewelry for centuries. You can see some great gemstone jewelry designs at the website of online jeweler Giliarto.
