Ethiopian Opal discovery was actually not so long ago in 1994. Prior to that, Australia was the most abundant source. It’s fun to think about what other discoveries are on the horizon for gems. Throughout most of history, opals have been regarded as the luckiest and most magical of all gems because they can contain the colors of all of the other gems combined. It is the microscopic collections of silica spheres within Ethiopian Opals, and all opals, which diffract light and provide the magical display of color we associate with the gem.
Opal is the birthstone for October, and it is also the stone given to celebrate the 14th wedding anniversary.
Consider pairing these round Opal earrings with a pendant as a beautiful gift set, for any occasion!
