It’s October, and my birthday is in October. I like to think it should be more than just a birth-day; I like the idea of a birth-month. What’s better than a whole month of cake? Well, nothing really, but a month full of Opals, the birthstone for October, comes a close second.
Opals are exquisite gemstones that come in a variety of colors and types. As one of the birthstones of October, it has become famous for its rainbow sheen and its curious properties.
