Gems: Opals along with Tourmaline are birthstones for those born in the month of October and opal is the stone given to celebrate the 14th year of marriage. The name "opal" comes from the Sanskrit word upala, meaning precious stone. Opals can be found all over the world, and have been beloved for centuries for their show of spectral color. It is said that precious opal, with their display of fire, can spark creativity and enhance insightful qualities.
In East Indian mythology, the Goddess of the Rainbow was turned into an opal by the Mother Goddess to protect her as she was being chased by suitors Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. The ancient Greeks thought the stone could give people the gift of prophecy. European cultures have long believed opals to be a symbol of hope, purity and truth.
