“October’s child is born for woe
And life’s vicissitudes must know
But lay an opal on her breast
And hope will lull those woes to rest”
Well, we don’t have to believe the October poem!! Take heart October babes and have a look at this – there are two birthstones for you – Opal and Tourmaline. Choose from the rainbow of colours that Tourmaline can be, or choose an Opal gemstone which will be unique because each individual gem is adorned with it’s own beautiful colour combination.
The opal is associated with hope, innocence and purity and it’s healing properties are reputed to be related to eye problems and infections. Tourmaline has historically been revered as a “magic” stone, capable of protecting whoever wore it.
Happy birthday to all with a birthday this month!
