Birthstone for October – Opal

Each month brings with it a new beautiful birthstone and the stone for October is the Opal! In this blog we will be discussing all you need to know about the Opal Birthstone… 

The Opal is a translucent healing stone that is formed by rain. Its name comes from the Latin word ‘Opalus’ which means precious stone. It was said to be discovered in Australia in the late 19th century, however some Archaeologists have dated opal finds to over 10,000 years ago in North America. When it was first discovered, it was said to be a talisman to protect against disease, whereas some thought of it as the symbol of love. 

This beautiful multicoloured stone has a unique shine and lots of fantastic properties… 

It’s thought that the Opal promotes creativity, effective meditation and spiritual awareness. However, it is most known for its ability to bring one’s traits and characteristics to the surface for examination and transformation. Helping bring to light important factors. 

The Opal not only promotes spiritual awareness, but it also picks up on important feelings and desires, amplifying them and returning them to the source. 

If you are wanting to boost your positive thoughts the Opal is the perfect stone, illuminating positive actions and emotions.
