About Antique Style Opal Ring
Named the “Wala Ring” after a sun goddess in Australian Aboriginal Mythology. According to mythology every day Wala would venture to the southern mountains bringing back the sun stored in a bag. Wala keeps it in her bag until the moon disappears.
The opal is a unique gemstones because of its characteristic appearance and vibrant colors which change and flash as you turn the gem in your hand. No two opals are alike.
The word ‘opal’ comes from the Greek word opallos, meaning “to see changes of color” whereas the Romans are said to have based their name opalus on the Sanskrit word for precious stone upala.
Opal is a precious gemstone. It is a formation of non-crystalline silica gel. Millions of years ago this silica gel seeped into crevices and cracks of the earth’s sedimentary strata. Through eons of time and through nature’s heating and moulding processes, the gel hardened and can today be found in the form of brilliant opal.
Metaphysical Qualities of Antique Style Opal Ring
According to an old Australian Aboriginal legend, the Creator came down from the heavens on a rainbow and delivered a message of peace for all mankind. The stones which were near the place where her foot touched the ground suddenly became alive and began to sparkle. In Aboriginal legend this was the birth of opal stone.
Early races credited Opals with magical qualities and traditionally opal was said to aid its wearer in seeing limitless possibilities. It was believed to clarify by amplifying feelings, buried emotions as well as desires.
The Romans had been wearing opals for centuries and considered them a symbol of hope and purity. They believed opals instilled the gift of prophecies, warned of poison, brought good fortune, and protected against disease.
Early Greeks believed they embodied the powers of foresight and prophecy.
About Herkimer Diamonds in Antique Style Opal Ring

As is the case for any natural crystal a coincidence of appropriate condition are responsible for the growth of Herkimer Diamonds. First of all the environment must provide a crucible for the crystals to form in. In addition the elements for the crystal’s formation must be present and in a state of free dissociation.
Like common table salt in water the constituent elements must be moving freely within the crucible. Conditions must then occur which allow these elements to come back together in a regular geometric pattern. Electrostatic forces at the atomic level create this pattern Atoms in this state act like little magnets and, like the north and south poles in magnets, they can only attach to each other in ways that are specifically dictated by these forces. It is as a result of these forces Herkimer Diamonds have theirbeautiful geometry.
The host rock for Herkimer Diamonds is the Cambrian-age, Little Falls Dolostone. Little Falls Dolostone is about 500 million years old. Herkimer Diamonds form in the cavities within the dolostone.
