◊ Opal is a hydrated amorphous form of silicate which classifies it as a mineraloid, which is a mineral-like substance that doesn't demonstrate crystallinity. It's found in limonite, sandstone, rhyolite, marl, and basalt. It's colors are caused by the reflection of white light which enters the top of the stone. This light bounces around inside the tiny microscopic silica spheres within the stone, causing the diffraction of the light and the 'prism' or rainbow effect which we all know and love.

◊ Emeralds are visually captivating gemstones with an equally interesting history. Accent history records Emerald mines near the Red Sea, "Cleopatra's Mines," where the Pharaohs gathers gems between 3000 and 1500 B.C. The Incas and Aztecs once worshiped Emerald as a holy stone. In ancient Rome, it was the color that symbolized the beauty and love of the goddess Venus. Emeralds are a gemstone variety of the mineral Beryl that obtain their color from chromium and vanadium. 

◊ The word diamond comes from the ancient Greek adámas, meaning unbreakable. Most natural diamonds are formed at high temperatures and pressure in the Earth's mantle. Carbon-containing minerals provide the carbon source, and the growth occurs over periods from 1 billion to over 3 billion years. Diamonds are brought close to the Earth's surface through deep volcanic eruptions by magma, which cools into igneous rocks.
