Both Libra and Scorpio born in the month of October share the opal as a birthstone. The Opal is symbolic of faithfulness and confidence, and derives its name from the Latin word "opalus," meaning precious jewel. October's iridescent birthstone treats the eye to a play of shimmering colors. Prized for its unique ability to refract and reflect specific wavelengths of light, the Opal was called "Cupid Paederos" by the Romans, meaning a child beautiful as love.
