October Birthstone – Tourmaline and Opal

October has two birthstones – Tourmaline and Opal. Tourmaline is a favorite gemstone for many because it’s available in a rainbow of beautiful colors. Opal gemstones are truly unique because each individual gem is adorned with a one-of-a-kind colour combination but both gemstones are all about the colour!
I asked the Australian Wandarrah team members what items they had in their shops that could be given as birthday gifts this October. Here’s what they offered up:

I love opals and love the places in Australia where they come from … the people, the quirky lifestyle and of course the stones. Here’s one of our creations that would look great with a pair of opal earrings.

This Cushion Cover remind me of the gorgeous colours in Tourmaline and Opal the birthstone of October. It also reminds me of Spring a time to celebrate all things bright and colourful.

The awe inspiring beauty of the natural world is highlighted in this hummingbird print with it’s rich jewel-like colours echoing those of the opal.
