With its pulsating display of play of color, Opal was long reserved for royalty. The crown of the Holy Roman Emperor held a superb fiery red Opal called the Burning of Troy which later was given by Napoleon as a gift to Josephine. Queen Victoria often presented opals as wedding gifts. Because of its high water content, opals thrive when worn. If placed in storage or exposed to heat for too long, this magic stone will pale. Opal is often chosen to celebrate those born in October.
Mexican Fire Opal
These are definitely not your grandmother's opals. One of the most vibrant of gems, it brings a life to jewelry that demands attention. Its blazing orange color communicates security and success, as well as health and vitality. Treasured by the Maya and Aztecs, Mexico produces this transparent opal and regards it as the national gemstone. Unlike white opal, fire opal is usually faceted.
