"All of Nature’s splendour seems to be reflected in the manifold opulence of fine Opals: fire and lightnings, all the colours of the rainbow and the soft shine of far seas." Opal is October's second birthstone (along with tourmaline). The name derives from the Greek 'Opallos', meaning "to see a change (of color)." Opals range from milky white to black with flashes of yellow, orange, green, red, and blue. Opal is a formation of non-crystalline silica gel. Through time and nature's heating and molding processes, the gel hardened into the form of opals. The amazing opal pictured is called "Galaxy Opal."
