Pink tourmaline is the modern birthstone for October. It is a beautiful rosy pink faceted gemstone. Our 14kt gold October birthstone ring has a beautifully faceted pink tourmaline.
Tourmaline is a complex silicate that contains boron. The stone has a larger color range than any other gemstone - it is available in every color! The Mohs hardness for tourmaline is 7 -7.5, so it is a fairly hard stone.
White opal is the traditional birthstone for October. Opals are a hydrated amorphous form of silica.
White opals have a pale white body tone and display many beautiful flashing colors.
Most white opals are from Australia and come from the Coober Pedy mines. The Mohs hardness for opals is 5.5 -6; so they are moderately soft stones. Take special care of your jewelry containing opals.
For jewelry, most opals are cut and polished as smooth, domed cabochons; they are not faceted.
