October Birthstones-Pink Tourmaline and Rose Zircon

 

 

 

Pink Tourmaline

The light red to pink tourmaline is the birthstone for the month of October and the gemstone representing the 8th wedding anniversary. It was once believed that it protects the wearer against bad decisions, many dangers, and misfortune. It is also known to attract friends and lovers. Tourmaline is a silicate of very complicated composition, is very brittle with most crystals penetrated by numerous irregular cracks and  fissures. It varies in transparency and color to a considerable extent, with perfectly clear and faultless specimens being rare and commanding a high price. It is found around the world, from the Ural mountains (where on account of its resemblance to ruby it is known as Siberian Ruby), to Brazil (the principal locality for green tourmaline), to the more common pale rose-red or dark carmine color red found both in Burma and in Maine in the United States.

 

 

 

Rose Zircon

The brighter deeper rose colored Rose Zircon offers an alternative to tourmaline in both price and perfection of crystalline structure. Zircon is a compound of oxides of silicon and zirconium, is fairly hard so as be faceted and polished to a brilliant luster, and has better clarity and fewer fissures or inclusions than tourmaline. Zircon is more strongly refracting than any other precious stone with the exception of diamond. So brilliant are the colorless or pale-colored hyacinth Zircons, that such stones found at Matura in Ceylon in the eighteenth century were know as "Matura Diamonds". Most Zircons are heated to change or enhance their color.  Attractive Rose Zircon is available in a faint pink to a dark rose hue.
