Black Opal is considered the rarest type of opal and the ones with the vibrant play-of-color such as this one are classified as Precious Opal. Opal is often referred to as a 'living stone' - they are 'hydrophane', meaning that they absorb water and when they do their appearance changes. If opals come in contact with water, they will soak it up it like a sponge and in fact up to 21% of the opal can be made of water. Therefore please take off your opal jewelry when using harsh chemicals and perfumes!
Metaphysically opal symbolises purity and hope. It has been regarded as a protective stone which keeps the wearer from harm.
