Precious opal has been called a gemstone which combines the best possible characteristics of the most beautiful of gemstones: the fine sparkle of almandine (diamond), the shining purple of amethyst, the golden yellow of topaz, and the deep blue of sapphire, so that all colors shine and sparkle together in a beautiful combination. According to an old Australian Aboriginal legend, the Creator came down from the heavens on a rainbow and delivered a message of peace for all mankind. Stones that were near the place where His feet touched the ground suddenly came to life and began to sparkle. This was believed to be the birth of opal. Opal is the traditional birthstone for October.
