Irridescent Opal Ring
A beautiful Opal stone , set in silver.
The images show how adularescence creates different colours in the opal. Both pictures are of the same stone , but catching the light from different angles ...Amazing!!
Opals are created from silicon dioxide solutions, which entered cracks in ancient rocks during the Cretaceous geological period. Once the water evaporated , the tiny spherical silica particles eventually created Opals. White light is refracted by these spheres and is broken up to form the colours of the spectrum . This is adularescence.
Opal is a birthstone for Libra , Taurus and the months of October, September and November...
Opals are said to encourage stable relationships and companionship.
