30 Sep Opal – Birthstone for October
Opal is the birthstone for the month of October, Opal is also the stone given to celebrate the 14th year of marriage.
Opal can range in colour from clear through to slate and black. The paler stones with subtle pastel shades against a white background are termed white opal. Black opal has a black overall effect with bright flashes of colour. Both white and black opals can be exquisite. Opal is noted for its play on colour; the subtle way in which colours change as an opal is tilted and held in the light.
