Opal for Marrsing Harmony
Opal is the gemstone of Love and emotions. It’s arguably the most liked gemstone with its multifaced reflections radiating from different angles. Similar to our many expressions of love and emotions that are not always definitive, opal is amorphous; meaning it doesn’t have a crystalline structure. Just like our love which can take the form of who we are as an individual, each of us determines how we will love, as a partner and spouse.
Why Opal Was Chosen as The Marrsing Stone
Similar to each single individual, Opal is a unique, diverse, and beautiful stone. Like our thoughts and emotions, opal is an unpredictable stone that takes on many shapes and colors.
Opals have two basic colors, their background color and their play of colors. For MARRSING the background color represents the ‘single individual self’ and the play of colors represents our committed self as the partner in our marriages and relationships.
In ancient Rome opal was known as opalus which translates as the "precious stone." We are precious – We’re worth it!
Origins and Types
There are two types of opals: precious and common. Precious opals either have vibrant color (fire opal) or exhibit a play of color. Play of color is a term coined to describe the unique multi-dimensional color display that the more precious opals have.
Precious opals have two basic colors, their background color and their play of color. The background color is caused by impurities within the silica. Within the precious opal family, there are many different varieties of opal. Each has their own unique color combinations and character traits. Opals can be found orange, yellow, red, green, blue, or purple. Black opals are considered one of the rarest gemstones, though they too can be a variety of dark colors.
“The name opal is thought to be derived from the Sanskrit upala, meaning “precious stone,” and later the Greek derivative “Opallios,” meaning “to see a change of color.”
