Highlight: Tourmaline, October's Newer Birthstone.
If you've been around here at all, you know how much I love October! My husband and I were married in Oct, the weather in Oct is almost perfect, and of course, last but never least is Halloween. The best holiday ever. If I could keep halloween decorations up all year long as my "home decor" I absolutely would. Tourmaline is October's newer birthstone, let's talk about it.
If you were born in October, you're lucky enough to have two birthstones to choose from, and they're both fabulous, Opal and Tourmaline. Opal was designated first, but some thought it was too feminine and not durable for daily wear. Enter Tourmaline, the prettiest stone around IMO.
Egyptian legend states that when Tourmaline was being formed, it passed over a rainbow as it made it's way from center Earth, which is why it's so colorful. The term Tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese ( official language of Sri Lanka ) word "tura mali" meaning "a stone with mixed colors" Also being dichroic, Tourmaline has the ability to to subtly shift it's color depending on the light source.
It's an emotional grounding stone that pairs perfectly with October's vibe. The weather is cozy, chilly mornings, gorgeous warm sunshine during the day and crisp fresh air at night that shouts "I'm comfortable, wear whatever you want to, let your style shine" Ok, maybe that's just what I say in Oct.
