Birth of a Stone Oceanside

Experts believe that birthstones can be traced back to the Bible. In Exodus 28, Moses sets forth directions for making special garments for Aaron, the High Priest of the Hebrews. Specifically, the breastplate was to contain twelve precious gemstones, representing the twelve tribes of Israel.

Later, these twelve stones were likely also linked to the twelve signs of the zodiac. Eventually, they also became associated with the twelve months of the calendar year.

The month of October brings the birthstones of Opal & Tourmaline. Seductive stones, associated with passion & desire. The Common Opal is characterized by its translucence and its palette of colors that include red, green, blue, and orange. It’s also known for its dendritic inclusions. Opal is a delicate stone with fine but vibrant energies.

Tourmaline has been said to be a stone of reconciliation, a stone that fosters compassion and cool headedness, radiates the energy that attracts money, healing and friendship, and is used for grounding purposes, to stabilize, and reaffirm our Earth roots. It also creates a commitment towards the completion of one’s goals and is said to protect the wearer against dangers.
