Combining all the colors of the rainbow in one stone, it is no wonder why Opal has been a prized possession throughout the centuries. It was one of the most sought after stones during Roman times due to its ability to display flashes of rainbow color; the more color an Opal displays the more valuable it is. Opal possesses more tradition and mythology than any other gemstone. The origin of the name Opal is derived from the Latin word "opalus" which means a stone. It is 6 on the Mohs hardness scale, meaning it is a somewhat fragile stone and should be worn with care. Opal is one of the birthstones for October.
