Opal imparts hope and harmony

Opals, like tourmalines, can come in a variety of colors. The difference is that opal diffracts light and can display all the colors of the rainbow simultaneously. This is because of their unique make-up of light-bending microscopic silica spheres. There are two broad classes of opal: precious and common. Precious opal displays play-of-color, common opal does not. Opal gemstones are truly unique because each individual gem is adorned with a one-of-a-kind color combination of colors. Black opal is considered the rarest and white, grey and green the most common. Most opals are cut into cabochons. An opal’s value ranges from very little to thousands of dollars. The word opal comes from the Greek ‘opallios,’ meaning ‘to see a change of color.’ Australia was originally the world’s producer of opals, but recently data suggests that that now Ethiopia is. Opals have been considered great luck throughout history, because it was thought to possess the value of all gemstones in the opal color spectrum.

It is also a present for the 14th wedding anniversary.
