Opal: Opals are known for their impressive array of flashing colors. Meaning “stone of value” in Sanskrit, the word opal is derived from the same root as the Greek “opallios” or “color change”. While there are many different kinds of opals from all over the world, opals are commonly mined in Australia. An Australian aboriginal legend tells that The Creator came down to earth on a rainbow to deliver a message of peace to all humans. On the exact spot where he landed, the rocks became alive with all the colors of the rainbow and opals were born. Opal acts as a prism within the aura, bringing a full spectrum of Light energy to the system, soothing and clearing the emotional body, and boosting the will to live and the joy of one’s earthly existence. It promotes optimism, enthusiasm and creativity, and allows for the release of inhibitions inspiring love and passion. Uniquely, opals always contain water- usually between 2% and 6%. Therefore, opal jewelry should be worn as much as possible to assure that the gemstone receives enough moisture from the environment. Without it, the opal’s color will pale. Opal is the birthstone for October.
Amethyst: The word Amethyst comes from the Greek ‘amethystos’, meaning, “not drunken”, as it was thought to protect against inebriation. Amethysts were traditionally associated with the ancient Roman fertility and wine god, Bacchus, and the word amethyst in German is ‘bacchusstein’- the Bacchus Stone. Amethyst is believed to bring emotional stability and strength, especially in times of pain or grief. It is the soothing stone of sobriety and is helpful in dispelling addictions and destructive behaviors of all kinds. Light colored amethyst is associated with the crown chakra. Amethyst is the birthstone for February.
