Opals represent hope and innocence. These gems are formed by non-crystalline silica gel that seep into rock crevices. Through time and nature’s own heating and moulding processes, the gel hardens into beautiful opals. Known as the queen of the gems in ancient times, this opulent stone encompasses the colours of a multitude of other gemstones.
