Opals have a long history and have been associated with all sorts of legends and tales. Thieves and spies used to wear opals, as they believed they could help make them invisible and undetectable, and the Native American Indian and Australian Aboriginal shamans used opals to invoke visions. The Australian Aborigines also say that the creator came down to earth on a rainbow bringing a message of peace to the world. At the very spot where his feet touched the ground, the stone became alive and sparkled with all the colours of the rainbow. And it was there that opals were said to heave been created.
Opals have an inspiring energy, and are often used as a tool for awakening psychic and mystical abilities. They also have an air of strength, reminding us of the importance of maintaining relationships, whether friendships, love or business.
