Fall signifies its arrival with a change in the color of leaves and foliage – making for rich displays of color. So, is the case for the Opal – the gemstone of those with fall birthdays in the month of October.

Beautiful Opals come in a varied “rainbow” of colors, from milky white to mysterious, fire-streaked blue and black stones. The Black Opal is most rare –often rivalling the diamond in pricing.  Next in importance is White Opal, which is characterized by a lighter body color such as white, yellow or cream in addition to unique color plays. Other types of sought after stones include the Fire Opal, or Mexican Fire Opal, which is a transparent to translucent deep orange-red stone. Fire Opal can also feature unusual plays of color – a rarity that when it occurs, results in the stone being called a Precious Fire Opal.

A Black Opal Stone

The name opal is derived from the Greek word Opallos, which means “to see a change (of color).” It is often associated faithfulness, protection and loyalty. The opal stone is also believed to enhance one’s vision as well as creativity.

The alluring Opal is most often used as a stunning center stone for rings, pendants and cabochons.
