Boulder Opal: Opal takes its name from the Latin word Upala meaning precious stone. The Roman scholar Pliny described opal as ring having the fire of carbuncle (a deep red garnet) & the brilliance of amethyst with the green color of emerald. The Romans believed opal was the symbol of hope & purity. They called it cupid paederos (child as beautiful as love) & thought the wearer safe from disease. The Arabs believed that opals fell from heaven in flashes of lightning.
