It’s October, which means there’s a ton of October birthdays coming up this month! The October birthstone in Opal, so PoliceAuctions.com has decided to feature some of our sapphire items for your last-minute shopping needs!
Opal is formed when seasonal rains soak especially dry ground in places like Australia’s outback. The rain causes silica deposits to form in underground rocks which eventually turn into opals.
Some people think that wearing opal is unlucky if you’re not born in October, but this is actually just a superstition made up for the novel Anne of Geierstien by Sir Walter Scott.
Throughout history, opals were actually considered on of the most lucky and magical gemstones due to their color. They were even once thought to preserve life and the color of blonde hair.
I’ve included links to the opal items featured in this video. If you’d like to bid on any of these items, just click the blue link below the picture of the item.
