Hello! My name is Hannah and I shall be co-hosting the AC Silver blog from now on. I have some big shoes to fill! I hope I can bring you some interesting and enjoyable reads throughout the coming months. For now, here’s my first post, so here goes..!
It’s Autumn, the sun is sitting low in the sky and rich rustic coloured trees line conker littered pathways. Somehow October has sprung upon us again, and for many Librans and Scorpios out there, it’s about time to celebrate your special day again!
Aussie for Opal
This month’s birthstone is the beautiful opal, a personal favourite for a few of us here at AC Silver and the national stone of Australia, which produces 97% of the world’s supply of this pretty gem!
What Makes Opal So Special?
The opal's internal structure allows it to diffract light therefore; depending on the conditions in which it was formed, it can take on many colours. The opal is the perfect gem stone to represent the beautiful month of October, as the stones can expose many different intense veins of vibrant fiery pigmentation, not unlike the colourful leaves which form the natural red carpet under our feet throughout Autumn.
Your Lucky Birthstone
So if you’re stuck for ideas on that perfect present, why not surprise someone with a classic opal piece such as this one? Whats more, opals are believed to bring good luck to those who’s birthdays fall under the month of October! Contact us with any queries at AC Silver Enquiries
Until next week, Hannah
