Opal is a gem, a semi-precious stone that comes in many shimmery, partly translucent colors. If your birthday is in October, opal is your birthstone.
Opal is a mineral made of silica, and it's found within the cracks and notches of many different kinds of rock. Most of the world's supply of opal comes from Australia. A polished opal that's been set in a ring or necklace is usually several shades or colours — most often blues and greens — with sparkles or shimmers decorating the stone. The word opal comes from the Latin opalus, and its ultimate root is probably the Sanskrit upala, "precious stone."

The opal represents justice and harmony and is a protective stone in dangerous places. Opal has always been associated with love, passion, desire, and eroticism. It is a seductive stone that intensifies emotional states and releases inhibitions. It can also act as an emotional stabilizer.
