About the stone
Opal is the birthstone for October.
Australia produces 95% of the worlds opals. It is not known exactly how opal is formed, but many believe it is formed when water from rain seeps down into crevasses in the rock. Once the water evaporates, the silica that is left behind dries out and hardens into precious opal.
The ancient Greeks believed that opals were formed from the tears of joy wept by Zeus when he defeated the titans, and that the opal bestowed prophetic powers.
Most civilizations see opal as a lucky stone. In the Middle Ages, it was considered that it could provide great luck as it carried all the virtues of each gemstone whose colour was represented in the opal. Following the publication of Sir Walter Scott’s ‘Anne of Geierstein’ in 1829, opal acquired a less popular reputation. In Scott’s novel, the Baroness of Arnheim wears an opal talisman with supernatural powers. When a drop of holy water falls on the talisman, the opal turns into a colourless stone and the Baroness dies soon after. Due to the popularity of this novel, people began to associate opals with bad luck and death and within a year of the novel being published, the sale of opals in Europe had dropped by 50%.
Opals have always been associated with love and passion, it is a seductive stone that intensifies emotions and releases inhibitions. It is believed to stimulate originality and creativity. Wearing opal is said to bring loyalty, faithfulness and spontaneity.
