Birthstone of the Month

The gorgeous changing colors of Fall remind us of the beauty of October's birthstone, Opal. A kaleidoscope of color from milky white to black with flashes of yellow, orange, green, red, and blue, make up the uniqueness of the gemstone. It displays a play of color against a background which has been compared to volcanoes, galaxies, fireworks, and flashes of lightning falling from Heaven. In Ancient Rome, it symbolized love and hope and was given the name "opalus" meaning precious stone. Opal is thought to be one of the luckiest of all birthstones because it gives a palette of colors. All Opals are considered to be fragile gemstones that require both care in wearing, and protection in storing separately from your other jewelry. It should be worn on occasions, rather than for everyday. Also remember to protect your Opal jewelry from sudden changes in temperatures and chemicals that could damage or crack the gemstones. Treat them with love and care to let their beauty to continue to glow through the years!
