Seeing how it’s my birthstone, I have a special connection with anything involving opals…and this one is a spectacular one from White Cliffs, New South Wales, Australia and now a part of the University of Arkansas’ Mineral Museum collection.

I love everything about this piece of opal, the variety of colors, the variety of transparency, and how it appears to be exploding/expanding from the inside out, like a chrysanthemum.

From the Crystals and Jewelry web site it states this as part of the meaning for opals:

Opal is a stone of inspiration which enhances imagination and creativity. It can bring inspiration to projects and to life and Spirit. Its own spirit is at times like that of a child spontaneously playing, dashing color where ever it pleases. continue reading…

For more scientific information about opals check out this mindat.org web page: www.mindat.org/min-3004.html

We can learn a lot from mother nature and her opals about color combinations that work well together.

Happy Coloring!
