Opal is the October Birthstone. These beautiful gemstones are born from some of the driest weather conditions in the world, with varieties of the fem that can only be found in one place in the world. Their beauty comes in a kaleidoscope of colours which is refracting from within the gemstones. Opals have been given titles such as “The Stone of Sight” and the “Queen of Gems”. This gemstone was thought to possess all the powers of the stone’s whose colour was trapped inside the opal.
