A little bit of history, myth and legend
Opals or 'opalus' in latin were once described by Pliny the Elder, a roman historian, as a precious stone containing the firey flame on the carbuncle (garnet), resplendent purple of amethyst and the sea-green glory of the emerald, all shining together in incredible union and exquisite pleasure. Opal is the hydrated form of silica and is classed as a mineraloid. Whilst pink opal is not as stunning as the opals found in Australia and Ethiopia it still has its own inherent beauty.
Pink opal is thought to bring peace and tranquility to the aura and is especially noted for its energies in healing emotions.
Care for your opals
Opals are one of the more delicate gemstones and can potentially be easily scratched. They also have a high water content and if kept in areas of low humidity they can potentially crack. Never wash your opals in soapy water as this can damage them.
