Opal is the traditional birthstone for October and the star sign of Libra. It symbolises purity, hope and truth. Traditionally people gift opals on 14th wedding anniversaries, but today some also consider it the alternative gem for 12th anniversaries.
One of the many legends that surround the opal is an ancient Australian aboriginal story about the creator of the universe. According to the tale, the deity descended to Earth on a rainbow. Where he touched the ground, the stones began to shine in every imaginable colour and that’s how opals were born. Later on when opals reached ancient Europe, people continued to believe they had magical powers.
OPAL is a 14th Anniversary gemstone.
