Opal with a variety of colours
The word Opal comes from the old Indian word `Upala` which means gemstone. In Sanskrit, Opal means 'precious stone'. Initially Opal was used in antiquity to make primitive tools, later it was used to make decorative objects. Opal was used by the Assyrians, Babylonians and Romans.
Versatility of Opal
Opal can take on many different colours, from bright white milk opal to red fire opal. It is also remarkable that this mineral can be iridescent. This means that different colours of the rainbow can occur together. Inclusions like Dendriet opal also occur.
Opal is seen as a stone that has a positive effect on the stomach, digestion and heart. It is therefore also a stone that is associated with love. It stimulates loving relationships.
On a spiritual level, the stone ensures that life is seen as a miracle. Suppressed feelings are released, your mood improves and worries disappear.
