Opal is a kind of gem with gorgeous color. It enjoys a high reputation and prestige in the world jewelry market and is located in the world's high-end jewelry ranks. As one of the six most famous gemstones internationally recognized as diamonds and rubies, opal has been used as an ornament in the West for at least 2000 years. Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria, Queen Josephine of Napoleon and Crown Princess of Denmark all have noble opal. According to the book opal written by British gemologist Richman, opal was used as a precious gem in 200-100 BC. In the era of Roman Empire, the value of opal was very high. Pliny, an ancient Roman scholar at the beginning of AD, also recorded that noni, the elder of the Senate of the Roman Empire, had a very beautiful opal, which he loved very much. Antony, the ruler at that time, threatened him to offer it, or he would be exiled. But he regarded treasure as life, and preferred to choose the exile of suffering rather than hand over opal. The value of opal can be imagined. The price of opal depends on many factors: embryo color, brightness, pattern style, color layer thickness, defect status and color changing game, which all play an important role in the evaluation of opal's value. Operton often uses carats to calculate the price. Other important factors include cutting, grinding, size and shape. In a word, the more the number of changing colors, the greater the intensity of changing colors and the higher the value of opal.
Opal is just as beautiful as God accidentally overturns the palette. Pliny, an ancient Roman natural scientist, once said: "on a opal, you can see the flame of ruby, the purple crystal and the emerald green sea. They are all in one, beautiful. The dazzling beauty of opal has made it the favorite of the market. There are three kinds of opal: natural opal (Opal) can be divided into three kinds: White Opal (White Opal), black opal (black gull Opal) and fire opal (Fire Opal) according to color characteristics and optical effects. In history, opal is regarded as the stone of fortune. It brings beauty to the appearance by charm and success and joy to the wearer. Early Greeks believed that opal contained the power to predict the future. The ancient Romans also cherished opal, believing that she was a symbol of hope and purity and a mascot, in which the beauty of rainbow was contained. In Shakespeare's literary works, opal is also mentioned many times, for example, in the twelfth night, it is called "Queen's stone". It's said in the history books that Europe's opal originated from India and the Middle East, but it seems that it came from Hungary. In 1890, the Australians also found opal, which caused great shock in the jewelry industry. Scandinavian women still wear opal today to keep their blonde hair moist and lustrous, and not gray, because they believe that opal has the power to keep people young and energetic.
