PINK OPAL

Opal is one of the most attractive stones and with its wonderful traits and variety of deep, rich colors that it comes in, it has become one of the more popular gemstones of our time. Opal is made from sand and water. Usually the sand comes in the form of limestone, sandstone, rhyolite or basalt. These silicates usually mix with water usually from meters underground in the water tables. Opal is created at very low temperatures, usually at 200 degrees Celsius or less. For the most part Opal is used for ornamental jewelry and it is a wonderful stone for many high quality pieces of jewelry. For instance, Opal comes in a wonderful array of colors such as white, black, gray, orange, yellow and red. Red is usually the most attractive color for Opal and it comes in either cherry or fire red. Another great trait of Opal is its opalescence. Opalescence is a kind of light play that happens with certain high quality stones. Light reflects and bounces around the very small structures of the stone, giving it a wonderful glow and sometimes iridescence. Opal is used for many types of ornamental jewelry pieces and while it a great stone for jewelry, synthetic opal is also used. Synthetic opal is very popular as well, because it is able to mimic extremely high quality Opal. Most people prefer synthetic opal due to the great traits and colors that synthetic Opal achieves. If you are looking for a stunning stone, Opal definitely delivers.
