Black opals are exceptionally rare in that they are known to form in only one place: Australia.
These gems have been considered for thousands of years to be extremely lucky and the most uplifting of the Opals, bringing Light into the aura. It eases distress and dissolves depression and hopelessness, helping one face their darkest fears and to release that which is holding one back. Linking the Root and Crown Chakras, Black Opal connects one’s highest spiritual aspirations with one’s physical body, making it a powerful magnifier of intention and manifestation. It is a protective stone for deep inner work, and has been thought to cure ailments of the eye and improve vision.
It was Shakespeare who gave black opals their moniker, “The Mother of All Gemstones", and the depth of its mysterious beauty definitely causes one to ponder one's origins! Set in 14 karat yellow gold with a distinctly retro vibe, this deep blue green opal has a fathomless, almost aquatic depth, exhibiting multicolored sparks of pink, yellow, cobalt and green, all characteristics of the Freeform Kite pattern. Also evident within the stone is a natural canyon-like formation or fissure. This is not a crack from being damaged, but rather an organic occurrence produced in the earth as the stone was being developed. Gaze at this magical ring long enough, and it will have you wanting to take the plunge right into its mysterious, primordial canyon!
