    Opal comes from the Latin “opalus” which itself is derived from the ancient Greek “opallios” that means “to see a change”. The very original etymology however is believed to be from the Sanskrit “upala” that means gemstone. This suggests that during Roman times opals potentially came from India. Opals are fabulolus gemstones because they don’t display a single colour, they display a many! Hence why ‘play of colour’ is an appropriate term to use when referring to opals. Opals can change colour depending on which angle you are look at them, what light you are viewing them in, and even dependent on weather conditions. I simply adore these gemstones.
