October's Birthstone - Pink Tourmaline

The Pink Tourmaline is the October birthstone. The tourmaline is a quartz crystal and can have natural inclusions within the stone. One of Tourmaline s most distinguishing properties is its ability to become electrically charged simply by heating or rubbing it. When charged, one end becomes positive and the other negative, allowing it to attract particles of dust or bits of paper. See our full Birthstone Collection for more gems!
