The History of An Opal Stone

Many eminent authors have compared the stone with fireworks, volcanoes, and galaxies. For a more dramatic and poetic approach, this stone is compared to Pandora, empress, etc.

In archaic Rome, the Opal Stone was the symbol of love and purity. Not even this, the stone was named synonymously​ with the precious stone. The Roman scholar Pliny described the appearance of the Opal Stone in the most poetic manner. He was amazed at the marvelous display of vivid colors of the Opal Stone. He observed the color of the Opal Stone in a Kaleidoscope at which he observed a stunning display of the Opal Stone. 

Many cultures regarded opals with supernatural origins and powers. According to an Arab legend, the stone is considered to have instantly fallen from the sky. The ancient Greeks believed that opals gave their owners the gift of fortune-telling and protection against diseases. Europeans have long regarded the Opal stone as the gemstone of symbol of hope, purity, and truth.

The Opal stone is the birthstone of the people born in October. Earlier it was considered as the stone was unlucky for the people born in other months. However, this superstition was ruled out very soon and the Stone proved lucky for every person looking forward to wearing this as the stone exhibits a brilliant range of colors.
