Opals are one of the most unique gemstones as they shift and change into wondrous colours depending on the light. They are also the national gemstone for Australia as over 95% of all opals are found here. In Aborigine Dreamtime stories it is said that a creator of the earth came down on a rainbow to bring peace to the world and when his feet touched the ground it turned into shimmering opals. There are three types of opals, the black opal, boulder opal and the light opals.

The Opal is also the birthstone for the month of October and the Anniversary Gemstone for the 14th wedding anniversary.
