Fun nugget: The vivid colors and brilliance of the opal are believed to have healing powers in a few cultures, especially for vision. Perhaps the brightness of these stones caused people to believe they were “eye stones” to provide the wearer with good eyesight. Specifically, the intense color of the fire opal is also said to be an effective confidence-building stone for those who lack it. Some metaphysical advisors regard the fire opal as a stone of prosperity and is used to attract money. The birthstone of October.
