Where for art thou, Scorpio?

OK Scorpio people, you know you have opal and you might also guess you have topaz on your list of gemstones for your sign of the zodiac. Golden topaz has not been among my personal favorite gemstones; therefore it is not represented at Savané Silver. However I do have some Imperial Topaz from Brazil that I find super yummy. Now that I mention it, I think I need to make some pieces with it. Anyone agree?

I will wait to hear some feedback on the imperial topaz desirability. Here’s what the website, Charms of Light, has to say about qualities of topaz:

“Topaz soothes, heals, stimulates, recharges, re-motivates and aligns the meridians of the body – directing energy to where it is needed most. It promotes truth and forgiveness. Topaz brings joy, generosity, abundance and good health. It is known as a stone of love and good fortune. It releases tension, inducing relaxation. Topaz promotes openness and honesty, self-realization and self-control. It aids problem-solving and assists in expressing ideas. Stabilizes the emotions, making you receptive to love from all sources.”

I have recently posted lots of pictures on social media as well as videos of the opals that I use at Savané Silver. Ethiopian opals, Mexican opals, Australian boulder opals and opal triplets. Allow me to quote from the website, Charms of Light, again:

Opals: Ethiopian opal, Australian boulder opal and Andamooka opals.

“Opal is an emotional stone and reflects the mood of the wearer. It intensifies emotions and releases inhibitions. Encourages both freedom and independence. Opal enhances cosmic consciousness and induces psychic and mystical visions. It stimulates originality and creativity. Helps to release anger and claim self worth, aiding in accessing and expressing one’s true self. Opal strengthens memory. It encourages an interest in the arts. Wearing Opal brings loyalty, faithfulness and spontaneity.”

Where these two gemstones are the stones commonly associated as birthstones for the months of October and November, the list of gemstones for Scorpio is much, much longer. Let me simply make that list and if you care to continue to read, I will continue to quote from the website, Charms of Light. Enjoy!
