Oh, we love Opals at Minette! It shines, glows, and glimmers. Ancient Romans believed it to be the most powerful gemstone because it contained all the colors of other stones. It has been compared to volcanoes, galaxies, and even fireworks. Looking into a beautiful Opal, I can imagine why some people would describe it that way.
Opals come in 5 different types. White, Black, Fire, Boulder, and Crystal Opals all have different characteristics. They are mined from Australia, Ethiopia, South America, Mexico, and the United States.
October babies rejoice! The Opal is your birthstone. Opal has always captivated the minds and senses of writers and mystics alike. It has even been said that wearing an Opal will have the power to preserve the life and color of blond hair. Lucky Blonds!
Special powers or not, Opals are beautiful. We have some necklaces and new rings soon to be released loaded with Opals for you. Hope everyone is having a great Holidays!
