Opals are said to be stones of hope that bring the virtues of innocence and purity. Nearly all Opals come from Australia, others can be found in Mexico, Brazil, USA and Africa.

They have struggled to lose the label, but I believe you make your own luck, take care of your opal and there is no stone like it!
