One of the properties of opal is that its internal structure diffracts light. It can also take on many colors that range from white, gray, red, orange, green, blue, amongst others. Australia is the primary source of opal production as 97% of the world’s opal comes from there. Like other semi-precious gemstones, opal can also be produced synthetically. Natural opals are worth more in value. The word opal comes from the Roman term opalus. References to the gemstone are made by the Roman author Pliny, which suggested in his writings that it was adapted from Ops, the wife of Saturn (the goddess of fertility). During the Middle Ages, opal was considered a lucky stone because it was capable of possessing the color of every gemstone. It was also said that carrying an opal could confer the power of invisibility. In a popular novel written by Sir Walter Scott, the opal stone took over a negative connotation and was associated with bad luck. Soon afterwards people began to associate opals with bad luck. All of these mythical stories are an interesting part of the opal’s history, but the stone itself is commonly found in jewelry across the world.
