These ethiopian faceted opals from the Welo opal mine fields are truly stunning-beautifully clear and sparkly with amazing opalescence. Vibrant flashes of fire run through these semi precious gems: greens, blues, ultra-violets and reds. These opals look particularly special when held in the light and their true opal fire radiates from within.
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.
