Opal is the October birthstone as well as the accepted anniversary gemstone for the 14th year of marriage.

The well-known Roman naturalist Pliny described opal as "made up of the glories of the most precious gems... the gentler fire of the ruby, the rich purple of the amethyst, the sea-green of the emerald, glittering together..."

White opal has a white or light body color with flashes of many colors. Black opal has a black, dark blue, dark green or gray body color with vivid flashes of color such as red, pink and bright green.

Opal sources are Australia, Mexico and the U.S.

Opal symbolizes hope, innocence and purity.

Sometimes tourmaline, a pink stone, is used as a birthstone for October. Tourmaline spans the spectrum from red to violet. It also occurs in color combinations in one stone which accounts for its popularity. It is not as fragile as opal and is sometimes selected by those who prefer faceted stones.

Neither tourmaline nor opal are in the Bible


October, Opal.

Sapphire is the September birthstone as well as the accepted anniversary gem for the 5th and 45th years of marriage.

Sapphire, a variety of corundum, comes in all colors except red (the red variety being known as ruby), but is especially popular in deep blue.

Sapphire is found in Sri Lanka, Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar (Burma), Kasmir, Australia, Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, China and the U.S.

The sapphire symbolizes purity, faithfulness, and future.

The sapphire is Caleb's Mommy's birthstone *_* The gem is found throughout the Bible, again in the breastplate of the high priest (Exodus 28:18), and also is one of the layers of the wall of heaven (Revelation 21:19)! It is also used in various places throughout the Old Testament, such as Job, Lamentations, Ezekiel, & Isaiah.
