Commonly noted now a days as October’s birthstone. Opal has been fascinating people for generations. The Romans thought it due to having all the gem colors that it was the most powerful stone of all. The Greeks thought it was trapped lightning that fell from the sky after thunderstorms! Kings and queens regarded the stone as precious and showed up in their jewelry for generations. Currently we find many different varieties of opal in fashion jewelry all over the world!
“Empress Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III of France, refused to wear the stones, as did many others, some well-read and some not so well read. On the other hand, Queen Victoria laughed at the superstition, and as her daughters married, she gave them opals for wedding gifts. The daughters all fared well. In Asia, opal is viewed as a symbol of hope.”
