Opal Jewelry - Trip the Light Fantastic

Opals – Forming the Fantastic

While the world now knows, as the Bedouins once believed, Opals didn't rain down during thunderstorms with lightning within its surface, however, rain did play a part in the formation of this stunning gemstone. When rain fell on dry ground, it seeped between rocks and when silica deposits formed in the gaps, Opal was formed. Opal is known for its brilliant play of color within its surface which has been described in a poetic plethora of ways. The tiniest of spheres form inside the stones and when light creeps between them, the light bends and gives off a wonderful rainbow of colors.
