    Opal's Mystery Revealed!
    This Fiery Stone Heats Up October Birthdays

    Ever wonder what Opal actually is? Interestingly, it is a mineraloid gel which is deposited at a relatively Earrings low temperature and may occur in the fissures of almost any kind of rock. Precious opal, from which most jewelry is made does have an internal structure. Ordered spheres of silica help produce opal's internal colors by interfering and diffracting light as it passes through the stone. Cool right?

    In the Middle Ages, opal was considered lucky because it was believed to possess all the virtues of each gemstone whose color was represented in it's color spectrum. Later in history, Opal was seen as bad luck if not the owners's birthstone. It's not hard to make the leap that the extreme fragility of opal, compared to other gem stones, might have contributed to these and other superstitions.

    Tradewinds offers a huge selection of natural precious opal. the majority of it is in the form of OPAL DOUBLET. A Doublet is a slice of colorful natural opal glued on to a dark backing of potch (opal with no play of color), obsidian, onyx or some other dark backing. This process gives the opal more strength and durability as it's being set and worn.
