Meaning and Symbolism
There are many varieties of the October birthstone opal, known for exhibiting a kaleidoscope of gorgeous color. Opal is associated with hope, faith, purity and innocence. Ancient Greeks wore opals in the belief that the stone protected them from illness and gave them the ability to prophecy the future. Throughout history opals have been considered a lucky stone.
Origin and History
Scholars argue that the name opal is derived either from the ancient Sanskrit “upala” meaning precious stone, or from the Greek word “opallus” meaning “to be a change”. Many opals today are lab-created which results in a more perfect stone with the same chemical makeup of mined opal. Opals are a relatively soft gemstone with a layered internal structure which causes the natural color changes the stone is known for.
Fun Facts about Opal
In ancient times the opal was a popular lucky charm of spies and thieves as it was thought to cause the wearer to be unseen. Because of their unique multicolor radiance, Bedouins believed that the stone contained lightning that fell to earth during storms. Queen Victoria was one of many rulers who wore opal-encrusted crowns to protect them against enemies.

These are really pretty. They are rather large for "stud" earrings which makes them a tad heavy. The heaviness makes them droop. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Amazon Customer
