October - The Month of the Opal

Posted

October is here – the month of our most loved stone, the Opal. Opal has been the reigning champ of our vintage rings since our opening in 2013. From fiery genuine Opal to delicate imitation Pinfire Opal, the stone continues to be our most popular, yet. While we carry imitation and genuine Opal, the most valuable Opals come from Australia, Mexico, the U.S. and Britain. Opals, along with pink Tourmaline are the birthstones for October.

Opal was once believed to enhance creativity and harness originality and has always been associated with passion. Wearing an Opal has been said to bring out loyalty and faithfulness in its wearer.

You'll notice Opals have a marvelous reflective "rainbow" like effect in certain lighting. This is popularly referred to as the "fire" of the Opal. The "fire" or vibrant coloring comes from the reflection of the scattering of light from the closely packed silica spheres that make up the opal. These spheres are responsible for the different colors. The more coloring or “fire” in the Opal, the more valuable it is. Opals can be milky or slightly transparent. Transparent Opals have been known to hold a higher value, as well.
