Best October Birthstone Jewelry – Opal
Because there are two birthstones for the month; are you ready to explore the two options?
Opal is the traditional birthstone for the month. And, Tourmaline is the newer birthstone.
In the first place, the Opal was once considered the “Queen of Gems”. Since Opal gemstones encompass many colors of other gemstones; it is no surprise of the given name.
In fact. 95% of Opals are mined in Australia. Also, white Opals have been found in Brazil. Additionally, fire and crystal Opals have been found in both Mexico and the United States.
Due to the many locations Opals have been located; you are sure to find many different variations. At the same time, a black Opal has a higher valuation and is extremely rare.
