Opal is often described as "Nature's fireworks” due to its iridescent rainbow flashes through the white gemstone. It’s popularly thought that the name derives from the Sanskrit word for precious stone: upala. Most opal is more than 60 million years old and generally dates back to when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Opal is the birthstone for October and it is considered a stone of happy dreams and good changes. It is thought to be the most powerful of healing stones
Garnet is believed to have derived from the Latin granatum, meaning pomegranate and referring to its deep red coloured seeds. Garnet has been used in jewellery since ancient times and was thought to have great curative powers, protecting the wearer from harm. It is believed that Garnet energises the emotions, promoting confidence and strength of character.
Garnet is also the birthstone for January, symbolising eternity and truth.
