Julia Robert's birthstone is the opal for October. Opals have flaming sheaves of gem colors. Meaning "precious stone," the opal is a symbol of hope and purity. Romans used it as a remedy for eye diseases and as a luck charm.

Roberts was born in October under the sign of the scorpion.

Scorpions are famous for their sting, which can take several forms--intense, hypnotic, and passionate.

Famous Scorpions include Pablo Picasso, Sylvia Plath, and Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
