About Opal Rings

According to an aboriginal legend from Australia, the creator of the universe came to earth on a rainbow. The pebbles where he stood absorbed all the beautiful colors of the rainbow and that's how opals were born. Regarded as a 'symbol of hope', opals were believed to possess the virtues of all other gemstones. In the past, they have been worn to improve memory and eyesight, cure depression and other physical and mental ailments. A favorite gemstone among artists, an opal is believed to enhance imagination and creativity. It is said that during intense times of change, growth and transformation, an opal facilitates healing and guides you towards the right direction. The beauty of this gemstone and its vivid play - of - color is often associated with volcanoes, galaxies and fireworks. Early Romans and Greeks called it the 'cupid stone' as the seductive flashes of colors were believed to instill love and passion.

Scientifically, its formation has a more realistic background. It is said that rainwater seeped down the sedimentary rocks in the dry lands of Australia and settled in deep underground crevices. The water, when evaporated, left behind deposits of solid silica that became opals. There is about 20% to 30% water content trapped in them, which makes them delicate and vulnerable to sudden change in temperatures. Opal has a rating of 5.5 to 6 on Mohs scale of mineral hardness, which indicates that it needs care while wearing and during storage. Nevertheless, the hypnotic colors and the mysterious diffraction of light do not fail to enchant opal lovers. From Marc Antony and Cleopatra to Elvis Presley and Elizabeth Taylor, the rich and the celebrated have owned opals as prized possessions. Currently, it is the national gemstone of Australia.

Opal got its name from the Sanskrit word 'upala' and Latin term 'opalus', both meaning 'a precious stone'. The Indonesian name for opal is 'kalimaya', derived from the Javanese word 'kali' for river and Sanskrit 'maya' meaning illusion; together they translate to 'river of illusion'. With its magical play - of - color, this gemstone has managed to attract a distinctive class of admirers. If you too have fallen for this stone's unique and iridescent beauty, then one of the best ways to flaunt it is by wearing it on your finger.
