Leaves are coloring, rustling, falling. The radiance of October is captured in Opals - alive, changing with the light and sparkling in all the colors of the rainbow.
The birth stone for October, opals like a rainbow produce brilliant colors with water. Opal is Amorphous meaning it has no crystal structure. Instead opal is made up of minute silica spheres that trap water in any voids. Light shining through the silica and water create extraordinary play of color in this gem.
The name Opal comes from the Sanskrit word upala meaning "precious gem". Indian lore considers opal part of the Goddess of Rainbows after she turned to stone to avoid the romantic advances of the other gods. In Greek mythology opals were thought to be the stone form of the tears of Zeus wept after the defeat of the Titans. Arabic stories speak of the stones falling from the sky in flashes of lightning, imbued forever with its fire.
This ring carries the energy of the changing season, shifting light and brilliant colors. Wear this ring to capture a quite time out during the day - to feed your soul with vibrant light - a fall meditation.
