What's the birthstone for October? The stunning and transfixing stone that seems to pulse with it's own internal light, the Opal is the traditional birthstone for the month of October. ‘Opal’ translates ‘to see a change of colour’, which is a perfect translation for a gemstone that radiates a rainbow of colours throughout.
A spiritual and inspirational stone, the opal can enhance both imagination and creativity. The changing colours and iridescence of the opal is due to millions of tiny silica spheres in different sizes - the larger the spheres, the more impressive the ray of colours.
Opal has even been found on Mars, making it's description of 'Otherworldly' a strangely true fact!
What is the birthstone for Libra? Libra (23rd Sept - 23rd Oct) is the seventh sign of the zodiac, and ruled by the planet Venus.
