The Underappreciated Gemstone: Opal

Opals are the underappreciated gems of the precious stone world. And it is no wonder opal jewelry is so popular and has been sought after for thousands of years. This iridescent, rainbow-hued gemstone is beautiful.
Throughout history, many stories and superstitions have followed opals, including being associated with bad luck (due to Sir Walter Scott’s novel Anne of Geierstein) to having powers of invisibility.
Modern sources say that opal enhances imagination, creativity, and memory and decreases confusion. It is also said to protect the wearer when in dangerous places. Pretty neat, huh? So, get yourself some opal jewelry and shine on!
