Opal was revered in ancient times as a gemstone of good luck and happiness because it was thought that in its multitude of colors it carried the properties of many other precious stones. Called the “eye stone” by the ancient Romans they believed it had the power to heal eye diseases, a belief which was held into the Middle Ages when it was still called ophthalmos or ophthalmius.
