Continuing with the my ABCs of the natural world I get to the letter O. O-- is for Opal. I have quite a few opals. I was told that an Opal is lucky, but there are plenty of rumors and myths surrounding opals and some to the contrary.
The reasons I love opals:
They have personalities, like people and no two are ever exactly alike.
The colors within can be fiery like fire or cool like the ocean.
Opal is the birthstone for October. While my birthday falls on the second to the last day of September, my daughter was born in October.
October’s Child is born of woe
And life’s vicissitudes must know.
But lay an opal on her breast
And it will lull those woes to rest
