From Latin Opalus and Greek Opallios, meaning “to see a change of color”.
Opal is made up of several elements: cristobalite, tridymite, hydrated amorphous silica, and also contains a higher or lower percentage of water depending on the opal variety. It cannot therefore be considered as a mineral.
Its quality is determined according to the purity of its crystals, creating the iridescent reflections. It contributes to the awakening of consciousness, helping the wearer to let go and to live in the present moment.
