Opal: October's Colorful Birthstone

by Diana Jewelers of Liverpool
Opal: Octobers Colorful Birthstone Opal, October's birthstone, is known for its breathtaking "play of color." This "play of color" is created by minuscule silicone spheres which bend the light passing through the gem. Each stone displays an array of different colors including stunning reds, greens, and blues. Its beauty is enhanced when set against darker minerals such as ironstone, basalt, or obsidian.

The word opal comes from the Sanskrit word "upala" and the Latin word "opalus," meaning "precious stone."
