The month of October is known for having two birthstones- tourmaline and opal, with opal perhaps being the more recognisable one of the two. Known for its kaleidoscopic appearance, this stone contains a combination of colours depending on where the light hits, making it a beautiful and unique stone.
Originating from the Greek word “opallios” meaning “to see a change in colour”, most precious opal’s come from Australia and are often associated with good luck. It is also a very feminine looking stone, and one which is given on the 14th year of marriage.
Not only is Opal a traditional looking piece, it’s also a great fashion accessory, and unique alternative to wearing diamonds. At the Jewellery Superstore we have a wonderful collection of stones so we thought we would pick a few of our favourite opal pieces to commemorate this wonderful month!
