Unique Qualities

This 2 carat Ethiopian Opal is expertly faceted to show off its excellent translucency and fire to best effect. The gem has flashes of fire that display every spectrum of the rainbow. Many cultures throughout the world have looked to Opal as a guide into the subtle dream world. Opal is strongly connected to the subconscious and can be used for enhancing one’s inner-vision. Opal was used to aid in psychic abilities by shamans and healers. They have always been associated with the magic and the mystical. With their prisms of shifting rainbow colors, they were thought to be infused with lightening and born of the heavens. Just as a rainbow can emerge after a storm, so Opal is a stone of renewal and rebirth of hope after intense upheaval.

Gem Opal is a hydrated amorphous silica. The internal structure of gem quality Opal causes it to diffract light, causing a play of color, which can display virtually all colors from blue, to pink, green, yellow, white and black. Opal has microscopic spheres that create the play of color called opalescence.
