The Opal is associated with good luck, it is the birthstone for October and the gem fo 14th wedding anniversaries.

The name for the opal comes from the Sanskrit word "Upala", meaning precious stone or stone par excellence.

The Greek word "opallios" means "to see a change of colors".

The opal is an amorphous substance that belongs to the silica group. It is formed by a series of spherical microscopic structures of various sizes, which diffract light to show a beautiful play of colors.

We took several photos:
We take photos with daylight (no lightbox and no extra lighting at all).
And we take photos and videos on mirror in a light box with extra lighting (this kind of photos clearly show the quality of the cut and the clarity of the gem).
