The ancient Greeks believed opals gave their owners the gift of prophecy and guarded them from disease. Europeans have written that opals represent innocence, purity and truth with its typical white base colour, the opal is also known to enhance happiness and confidence within those who wear them - which is shown through the array of bright colours the opal possesses.
