October's Birthstone: Pink Tourmaline
The Tourmaline is found in more colors than any other gemstone, but only pink has been chosen as a birthstone for the month of October. Although known for centuries, it originally became popular when the Dutch began importing it from Sri Lanka early in the 17th century.

The vibrant colors often cause it to be mistaken for other gemstones. It is believed that the rubies in the Russian crown jewels were actually pink tourmalines. Legend states it was believed to grant enlightenment and to change base metals into gold.
