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 and store it in a bag, keeping it there until the moon disappeared.
The opal is cloaked in magic and mystery. It is set apart from other gemstones by 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” as well as the Sanskrit word for precious stone, upala.
Opal is classified as 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 molding processes the gel hardens and as a result today we find the brilliant opal.
Metaphysical Qualities of Opal
According to an old Australian Aboriginal legend, the Creator came down from the heavens on a rainbow to deliver a message of peace for all mankind and as a result the stones near his foot came alive with sparkle.
Early races credit Opals with magical qualities that clarify and amplify feelings, emotions and desires which as a results opens up limitless possibilities. 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. Early Greeks believed they embodied the powers of foresight and prophecy.
Emeralds are fascinating gemstones most of all they have a beautiful, intense and radiant green color. Top quality fine emeralds are even more valuable than diamonds.
The lively luminosity of its color makes the emerald a unique gemstone. However really good quality is fairly rare with inclusions often marring the evenness of the color – signs of the turbulent genesis which characterizes this gemstone. Fine inclusions do not diminish the high regard of an emerald. On the contrary even with inclusions an emerald in a deep lively green still has a much higher value than an almost flawless emerald whose color is paler.
The name emerald comes from the Greek ‘smaragdos’ via the Old French ‘esmeralde’, and really just means ‘green gemstone’. Innumerable fantastic stories have grown up around this magnificent gem.
The ancients ascribed numerous magical and mystical properties to this most precious of green gemstones. In ancient Rome emeralds were believed to have a soothing effect on the soul. Modern scientists have shown this myth to have some basis in fact: tests indicate that the human eye is more sensitive to green than any other color. Middle Age seers used emeralds to foretell the future, as well as to ward off evil spirits and cure ailments ranging from bad eyesight to infertility. This stone improves memory and brings great wealth to its wearer.
