October - TOURMALINE/OPAL

If you were born in October, Tourmaline and Opal are your birthstones.
First, the Tourmaline:
Its name comes from the Sinhalese (Sri Lankan) word 'tura mali', meaning 'the stone of mixed colours'.
Tourmaline is available from black to bluish black, dark brown, yellow, medium brown, blue to neon blue, lime to dark forest green, red and reddish purple, yellow, pink and colourless.
The most expensive ones are the blue Indicolite, the green Verdelite and the pink Rubellite.
Tourmalines are usually given on 8th Wedding Anniversaries.
Now to the Opal:
Opals are beautiful flickering gems that are thought to have their name coined from the Greek word "Oppalus" meaning "change in colour" and later in Latin word "Opalus" meaning precious stone.

They are believed to have strong spiritual value and glow with extraordinary, positive energy. They are considered to be the omen of hope. Also known as the stones of confidence and innocence, they help to treat stress and anxiety. Colours range from clear to white, gray, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, magenta, rose, pink, slate, olive, brown, and black.
Opals are also traditionally given on a 13th Wedding Anniversary.
