The stormy amalgam of colors in opal makes it extremely eye catching. Opal’s origin was said to be rainbows which endowed it with all the colors that you see. Opal contains silica spheres that diffract light to create the play of colors. The birthstone is a popular choice among individuals with October birthdays. Therefore, opal jewelry would make a great gift for your loved one’s birthday. Keep in mind, that authentic opal has relatively high water content, making it a delicate gem that may crack under extreme conditions and use.
