October has two birthstones; Tourmaline which is a favourite gemstone for many because it’s available in a rainbow of beautiful colors and Opal which are truly unique as each gem is adorned with a one-of-a-kind color combination.
The name opal derives from the Greek Opallos, which means to see a change (of color).” Opals range in color from milky white to black with flashes of yellow, orange, green, red, and blue. An opal’s beauty is the product of contrast between its color play and its background.
Through time and nature’s heating and moulding processes, the gel hardened into the form of opals. When these particles are closely packed in spherical arrangements and in regular pattern, a three-dimensional array of spaces are created that give opal its radiance.
It is used in rings, necklaces and diadems; the smaller specimens for mounting snuff-boxes, rings, etc. and is believed to have the power of strengthening the eye.
Tourmaline, being available in a wide variety of colors, is one of the favourite gemstone among jewelry designer, and gem collectors over the world. It is ideally suited to almost anyone’s taste.
Tourmaline is also known for displaying several colors in the same gemstone. These bi-color or tri-color gems are formed in many combinations; gemstones with clear color distinctions are highly prized.

Watermelon tourmaline combines the properties and pink, and green of their fellows.
When hearing the word Sapphire,we immediately envision a stunning violet-blue gemstone because the word “Sapphire” in Greek refers to blue. For centuries, the Sapphire has been referred to as the ultimate blue gemstone.
Sapphire, the September birthstone, has been popular since the middle ages and is believed to protect your loved ones from envy and harm. Since Ancient times the Blue Sapphire represented a promise of honesty, loyalty, purity and trust which makes them one of the most popular engagement gemstones today.Medieval clergy wore sapphires to symbolize heaven, while commoners thought the gem attracted heavenly blessings.
Blue sapphires range from very light to very dark greenish or violet blue and various shades of pure blue. They are found in many parts of the world, but the most prized Sapphires are from Myanmar (Burma), Kashmir and Sri Lanka. Sapphires with highly saturated violet-blue color and “velvety” or “sleepy” transparency are rare. The purer the blue color of the Sapphire, the greater the price. However, many people find that the darker hues of Sapphire can be just as appealing.
