Here we are in Mid October already, Hello October!!! It is still very warm here in Georgia, I, for one, look forward to the fall like temps, all the lovely fall festivals, the change of leaves and the smell of burning leaves in the air. I have been off for a week or so, had a visitor from England, it's was a lovely visit, she loved all that this time of year offers, her favorite thing overall was how big Halloween was here, all the decorations and haunted house, Oktoberfest, etc.. She said that she will never think of October the same way. What does October mean to you??? If you have a birthday in October, you have a choice of 2 birthstones–Opals and Tourmaline. It is said an opal will crack if worn by someone not born in October! Pink Tourmaline is the most common color used for October Birthdays." The name "tourmaline" comes from Sinhalese (Sri Lanka) and translates into English as "stone of mixed colors." Tourmaline is also well known in it's healing properties, Known to strengthen the mind and spirit, tourmaline has been a valuable part of ancient medicine and Far Eastern medicine. The Egyptians used tourmaline for both physical and emotional remedies. They firmly believed that tourmaline could heal the nervous system, blood diseases and lymph glands. Far Eastern medicine used the healing powers of tourmaline to treat all illnesses. Tourmaline is still believed to have healing powers in modern alternative medicine. It is also used to promote artistic and creative expression.
