Opal Rings For Sale

Opals are the birthstone for October. They are a beautiful stone. The opal is formed from rain which seeps into rock crevasses. After the water evaporates the silica that is left behind dries and forms the opal. I have been fascinated with opal jewellery for quite some time now. I admire the colours which they display and how they can change in the light.The ancient Greeks had a belief that an opal was formed by tears of joy wept by Zeus when he had defeated the Titans and that the opal had certain powers which gave strength.
