If you were born in October, you are in luck because you have TWO birthstones to choose from! Tourmaline and Opal.
The fascinating thing about Tourmaline is that it comes in SO many different colours and every Opal shows a unique combination of colours from pink, to blue and green.
This means you have an amazing variety on stones, shapes and sizes to choose from.
What is the most popular Tourmaline?
Green Tourmaline and Pink Tourmaline are the most popular choices.
They are available in a large variety of shapes and sizes making it perfect for large statement pieces such as cocktail rings as well as smaller jewellery items like right hand rings, earrings and necklaces.
Other Tourmaline options include:
Watermelon tourmaline - a unique combination of green and pink
Rubellite - dark pink and "hot pink"
Indicolite tourmaline - dark blue-green
Paraíba tourmaline - neon, electric blue
Cat's eye tourmaline - shows a cat's eye effect, typically cut into cabochons

Tourmaline is also known for the following traits:
soothing and nourishing stone that helps restore a sense of wholeness
brings emotional healing and self love
It does not show all colours of the rainbow at once, but rather a combination of blue-green and/or pink.
Opals are usually fashioned as cabochons, rather than faceted gems. They have one flat side and one side shaped like a dome. A cabochon cut helps display play-of-colour and is less likely to chip.
