Nature Writes In An Opal
Authored by: Monica Roy  

The ethereal combination of colors of an opal make it one of the most alluring and mysterious gemstones in Mother Nature’s repertoire. Someone said that Earth writes her memoirs in an opal. Oh how very true this is! From the colors found in an opal to the names that have been bestowed on them – this is one stone that deserves a lot of attention indeed. DiscountShop is turning the spotlight on opal simply because it is the birthstone for those born in October.

 

But the choice of watches that will remind you of opals is tough. The opal is not known for just one color! In fact, one stone may have myriad hues – a name such as the Harlequin Opal should give you a hint here! So we thought we could put together a collection of watches for Opal October, based on the colors of some of the most popular categories of opals out there.

 

In the spectrum of opals in the world, the Fire Opal is the most vibrant. With its innate colors of vivaciousness these opals bring together red, orange and yellow in different combinations of pure energy! The Michael Kors Women’s Runway MK6162 will certainly bathe your wardrobe in fiery fashion!

For the men, the Casio G-Shock GLX5600-4 should undoubtedly be a watch worthy to remind one of the fire opal!

Shards of blue electrify browns and grays as far as a Boulder Opal goes. This very unique play of color results in an opal which is distinctive in its contrasts. Imagine an unexpected stream of electric blue coursing through the most sedate of browns! But why imagine this when you can look at the Fossil Men’s Machine FS5073?

Even though it is called Black Opal or Dark Opal, it is actually a magnificent dark shade of blue, green, black or gray. The colors again, would be determined by the color play of an opal. For the deepest blue version of a black opal in watch form, you could look at the Marc Jacobs Women’s Baker MBM1329.

Even though the opal is known for its hues and specifically for its unique property of ‘play of color’ the Precious Opal is perhaps the most magnificent. Depending on its color play and the viewing angle, it can flash green, purple, yellow, blue and red. The Coach Women’s Boyfriend Mini 14501545 should keep you feeling pretty precious!

The Morado Opal is striking because of its predominantly purple hue.
