Trios celebrates mesmerizing beauty of opals
For centuries, opals have enchanted people around the world and have been the subject of much fascination and superstition. They are gemstones that have no equal. The most prized and sought-after opals flash a bright array of neon lights that constantly shift with movement or changing light.
The earliest known opal artifacts date back to around 4000 B.C. Throughout history, many cultures have attributed supernatural powers to these gemstones.
Early Greeks believed that wearers of opals would be gifted with the powers of foresight and prophecy, and according to Arabic legends, the stones fell from the heavens in flashes of lightning. In the Middle Ages, opals were believed to provide good eyesight and keep blonde hair from losing its color. Some believed opals could make the wearer invisible.
Today, more than 90 percent of the world's precious opals come from Australia, and the gemstones mined there are some of the highest quality and most brilliant in color.
