One-Of-A-Kind October Gems

Birthstone of October

With the option of two gorgeous gemstones, October birthstones offer a rainbow of shades and color combinations. Tourmaline is a favorite gemstone for many because it’s available in a rainbow of beautiful colors. Opal gemstones are truly unique because each individual gem is adorned with a one-of-a-kind color combination.

The name, Tourmaline, comes from the Sinhalese words tura mali, which means "stone of mixed colors". The name, Opal, originates from the Greek word opallios, which meant "to see a change in color." Opal was also given the nickname "Queen of Gems" because of the way it contains all the colors of different gems.

These two stones are equally beautiful and elegant in their shades and one does not outdo the other in worth. Both stones have a rich history and can be traced back hundreds of years into the past. With opal’s beautiful and unique designs, and tourmaline’s gorgeous crystal web, you can be sure to sport these stones throughout the year.
