Therapeutic Properties of Opal

The name "opal" comes from the Sanskrit word for "upala," meaning precious stone. It is said that precious opal, with its display of fire, can spark creativity, and that the "dance" of its fire can help people enjoy their lives.

Opal is often associated with the gift of prophecy. Both Chinese and Romans believed in this power of opal. The Chinese believe that in order to benefit from opal, the wearer must be pure of heart.

Opal is the traditional birthstone for those born in the month of October.
