All of Nature’s splendour seems to be reflected in a fine Opal: fire and lightnings, all the colours of the rainbow and the soft shine of far seas. This stone is one of the most beautiful but does need care in wearing, storing and cleaning.
The fantastic colour play of Opal reflects changing emotions and moods of people. Fire and water, the sparkling images of Boulder Opal, the vivid light flashes of Black Opal or the soft shine of Milk Opal – striking contrasts characterise the colourful world of this fascinating gemstone. Maybe this is the reason why it depends on our daily mood which Opal we prefer. Opals are like human emotions: you always experience them different and anew.

For ages people have been believing in the healing power of Opal. It is reported to be able to solve depressions and to help its wearer find the true and real love.
Opal, depending on type and colour, may be Winter, Autumn or Spring colours, but generally too bright for the Summer lady. Opal is the October birthstone and supposed to further enhance the positive characteristics for people born under the zodiac signs of Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius and Cancer. Black Opal is recommended to those born under Scorpio, and Boulder Opal is the lucky stone for Aries.
