This gemstone marble is for use with "Got All Your Marbles?" jewelry. Opals are a hard gel of silica. The beautiful play of color displayed by precious opal is attributed to it's highly organized micro-crystalline structure despite it's amorphous state. Opals even contain water and are slightly porous.
The opals we are providing are synthetic. They are manufactured to mimic the internal structure of precious opals. The stones turn out beautifully and have all of the intensity and dramatic play of color one expects from the finest precious opal. To top it off, these opals are perfect spheres and cost just a fraction of the price of the natural mined stone.
Opals are believed to be mirrors into one's mind and emotions. They are considered to be powerful stones for transformation and manifestation, and should be used with an awareness of their intensity. White opals represent balance and clarity.
