boulder opal | PLAINS of  STONE

Boulder opal – opalus – “the precious stone” with its base of all absorbing black it reflects all visible color. Never needing recharging, the ‘kaleidoscopic gem’ encompasses the spectrum of visible light, each facet reflecting blue and yellow and red and blue; it is described as lightening in a rainbow. Thought in days of old to be lightening fallen from the heavens this stone of hope, purity and trust yields an eternity of visual and spiritual delight.
