October Birthstone: The Opal

It is officially Libra season friends, which brings us to perhaps one of our favorite gemstones out there…the dreamy and magical opal. This special October birthstone is absolutely mesmerizing and was once believed to have held lightning that fell from the sky during thunderstorms! Opals are well known for their “play-of-color,” the appearance of their magical rainbow hues shifting and flashing. The October birthstone has also been revered as a symbol of protection, purity, hope and truth. Opals hail mostly from Australia, Ethiopia, Mexico and Brazil and are a little more delicate/softer than other gems, so proper care is vital!
