Opals have been cherished for centuries by various civilizations. In ancient Rome, opals were highly prized and symbolized hope and purity. Romans believed that opals possessed the combined beauty of all gemstones, making them exceptionally valuable. It naturally followed that opal jewelry was often worn by royalty and nobility, signifying prestige and power.
Opals also played a significant role in the folklore and beliefs of indigenous cultures. For the Australian Aboriginal people, for example, opals were considered sacred and believed to embody the Creator’s rainbow spirit and were seen as a source of spiritual connection and were used in rituals and ceremonies. The cultural importance of opal in indigenous traditions highlights its deep-rooted historical significance.
For those of us with an eye for jewelry, it’s opal’s ability to display a stunning play of colors, known as “play-of-color,” that is the most captivating characteristic of this stone. Each stone is unique and so very beautiful in its own right. It’s no wonder that this stone has often been linked to magical and mystical qualities, contributing to its allure and historical importance in the realm of gemstone jewelry.
