For those alike that find a little solace in carry healing crystals, gemstones and more as a part of spiritual health, here is a compiled list of a few to keep with you this October.
If you were lucky enough to be born in this favorited month that holds the best holiday, Halloween, then you are lucky enough to have two birthstones: Opal and Tourmaline. Known best for their kaleidoscope range of colors, Opal was the original stone for October-ians. Dating back to ancient times, Romans referred to this as the Cupid Stone, claiming it to be a symbol of purity, love and hope. Nomadic Arab tribes believed Opal fell to the Earth during thunderstorms and held lightning inside- giving it the flashy, precious colors you see. Ancient Greeks believed it could give the ability to see into the future and we can even find at one time the belief that it created invisibility powers for those who wore it.

Tourmaline is another stone that holds a pretty history as the Ancient Egyptians believed the range of colors were caused by the gems long journey from the center of the Earth, at which time it passed over a rainbow. It is said that the different range of colors comes with its own healing properties and qualities, like Black Tourmaline is thought to boost confidence, green promotes courage and strength, while pink helps us show compassion, unconditional love and all things kind.
