Gemstones

Opal

October's Gemstone is Opal

Most opals are found in Australia and are very soft by comparison. Jewelry enthusiasts have sought after this fiery flash of multi-color for many centuries. Opal and Tourmaline are the birthstones for the month of October.

Queen Victoria of England wore this stone regularly in her court. She was captivated by the rainbow of colors in the stone.

Opal is formed from silica rather than a crystalline material. It is iridescent with a wide range of internal colors. No other gemstone can display all of the spectrum·s colors in a variety of patterns, brilliance, and shades. For this reason, no two opals are identical. There are three groups of opals: white, black, and boulder.
