QUEEN OF GEMS
"Extremely delicate, extremely rare"
Opal; one of the most extrordinary of precious gemstones. The stone hails a wide variety of colors from the most vibrant of greens, shocking strokes of blues, and tantalizing glows of orange. The name Opal is derived from the Sanskrit Upala, which means jewel. It is a mineraloid or crystalline form of silica, and is characterized by its translucence and dendritic inclusions arranged in patterns such as mackeral sky, pinfire, and flower garden.
Mineral Melange’s Rare Opal represents all things fine, all things delicate, and all things rare.
