The meaning behind the October Birthstone: Opal

Thursday, October 22nd, 2020

Our October birthstone is the beautiful opal gemstone. Opal has long been valued as a stone of luck and magic. It is said to inspire love and hope, innocence, purity and happiness.

The term opal is adapted from the Latin opalus, but is believed to originate from the Sanskrit upala, meaning “precious stone.”

Opal is associated with the birthstone of October and as the gemstone of the 14th marriage anniversary. It is also known as the ‘eye’ stone and is cherished for its brilliance, colour play, and flashes of light.
