This Yowah opal is predominantly tan, orange and black, with sprinkles of green and blue fire that catch the eye.
The stone measures 24.2mm x 14.2mm (~1" x 1/2").
Yowah opals come from Yowah, Australia, the world's leader in opal mining. The word opal comes from the Sanskrit word "upala" for precious stone. Opals, one of February's birthstones, are known as the stones of inspiration and are said to enhance creativity and imagination. Opals are also thought to increase memory, self-esteem and good dreams.
