If you are born in October you are fortunate to have both opal and tourmaline as your birthstone. Each gem comes in a rainbow of shades and colour.
In myth and legend:
Opal encourages positive emotion, improves memory, instills loyalty and faithfulness with respect to love, personal and business relationships and brings spontaneity to the wearer.
Tourmaline helps balance the energies in the body; attract inspiration; promote understanding and encourage self-confidence.
