A striking stone

With its glowing prisms, often compared to star-flecked galaxies, opal is a mesmerising jewel with an other-worldly quality. Today, many of the world’s most extraordinary opals originate from ‘Lightning Ridge’ in Australia, so-called for its opals’ firework flashes of colour.

A timeless talisman

Throughout the ages and across cultures, opals have been a symbol of good fortune. In Arabic legends, opals fall from the heavens in flashes of lightning; the ancient Greeks believed opals gave the gift of prophecy, and the Romans gave its name – ‘Opalus’, meaning ‘precious stone’.

“A testament to its desirability through the ages, the word ‘opal’ stems from the Latin meaning ‘precious jewel’”
