About Australian Opal Pendant
The opal is unique as the result of its characteristic appearance as well as it’s 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 Roman name is from 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 as well as nature’s heating and moulding processes the gel hardens resulting in a brilliant opal.
Metaphysical Qualities of Australian Opal Pendant
Opals amplify feelings, buried emotions and desires and therefore clarifies ones vision. The Romans had been wearing opals for centuries and considered them a symbol of hope and purity. The ancients believed opals instilled the gift of prophecies, warned of poison, brought good fortune and protected against disease.
