The New October Birthstone: Tourmaline

The New October Birthstone: Tourmaline

Despite Opal being the official October Birthstone, in recent years Tourmaline has taken its place. This gem’s rarity relies on its vast range of colours, which is why ancient mystics believed that this gemstone inspired artistic expression – it has a colour palette for every mood. These different colours are thought to have their own personal healing properties: black tourmaline protects the wearer and gives them self-confidence; pink tourmaline represents love, compassion and gentleness; and green tourmaline promotes courage, strength and stamina.

Tourmaline - Price Varies

Quality factors to discover if a Tourmaline is valuable include its colour, specifically how intense the colour is, clarity, cut and carat. Tourmaline crystals are usually long meaning that when cutting, a more slender finished stone is the desired outcome.
