October's Birthstone - the Opal
All about Opal - an October Birthstone
The opal is one of the most mesmerizing gemstones. Its array of colors tantalize the eye and make it translatable into any ensemble!
First and foremost, the Opal gemstone is a symbol of loyalty, wishfulness & virtue. If the Opal is your birthstone, you most likely value these qualities. While the White Opal might be the most common Opal form, there are Opal stones of all tints including black, blue, purple, green & more!
Today, Opal stones are typically sourced from North America and Australia, which means most Opals are actually home-grown. The Opal is not quite as hard as its fellow gemstones, so taking good care of your Opal pieces is important. However, taking a careful & clean approach to sporting your Opal pieces will leave you with nothing to worry about!
