About Ethiopian Well Opals
The name Opal was derived from the Greek word 'Opallios' meaning 'to see a change of colour'. The ancient Romans considered it to be a symbol of hope and good fortune. Many cultures to this day consider opal to be a lucky gemstone.
Labradorite is a stone of transformation. It is a useful companion through change, imparting strength and perseverance. It was originally found in Labrador, Canada which it was named after. It has a unique iridescence that has been termed “Labradorescence” which is the result of diffraction of light in the layers of rock. Labradorite exhibits such captivating colour that ancient legends state that the Northern Lights shone down on the shores of Labrador and were captured inside these beautiful stones.
Peridot is found primarily among rocks that were created by volcanoes and buried deep underground. Romans referred to peridot as "Evening Emerald" because unlike the deep hues of emeralds, peridot gemstones did not darken at night and still shimmered under candlelight. Peridots were favored by pirates as they were considered powerful amulets against all evil. This gem encourages positive energy.
Tanzanite was discovered in Tanzania in 1967. The stone's only known source in the world is a small strip of land near Mount Kilimanjaro. This single, limited source renders tanzanite at least a thousand times more rare than diamonds.
Tanzanite has been attributed with qualities of good luck and prosperity, and is associated with celebrations of new life and new beginnings.
