NEOPOLITAN OPALTM

The lore of opals is plentiful, just like the variety of colors found in this fascinating, kaleidoscopic gem. The Romans believed it was the most powerful of gems and named the stone "opalus". The Greeks thought opals gave them the power of prediction. Europeans saw a symbol of hope, purity and truth. One famous opal "The Burning of Troy" was given by Napoleon to Josephine.

Internal diffraction is what creates the colors you see in an opal and provides its shimmering iridescence. The colors dependent on the size of the silica spheres within the stone. Small spheres show blue, the largest show red and other colors too. The value is determined by the amount of color play within the stone although for many the colors and patterns favored are personal taste.

Neopolitan Opal™ comes from only one mine - the new Yahwah mine in Ethiopia - and features an intriguing play of background colors combined with a captivating iridescence which blends deliciously with Le Vian® flavors of gold and diamonds, especially Strawberry Gold® and Chocolate Diamonds®

"What Le Vian® loves about Ethiopian Chocolate OpalTM is the unmatched iridescence, the flavorful body, and the higher hardness and durability compared to the milky look and softness of the Australian variety."
