What comes to my mind when that spectacular month is mentioned? Autumn, crisp temperatures, sweaters, pretty leaves that are always accompanied by imported leaf-peepers. Oh, okay, and Halloween, too.
But this month, I really wanted to focus on the colors of autumn. This summer hasn’t been too hot here in Western North Carolina, but we have had lots of rain, so I expect to get quite a show this year. I thought I’d explore the autumn colors in the wonderful world of gemstones.
