Aside from being October's birthstone, opal has had strong cultural

There are two types of opals, one being precious, and the other
being manmade. The precious opal stone is made of Silica spheres
that fluctuate in size. The regular sizes and packing of the
spheres is how the quality of the opal stones is measured. When
scientists discovered the ordered structure of opals, people began
to create absolutely brilliant manmade opal stones.
These stones can be seen in many of our stylish opal earrings. In
modern times the use of manmade or created opal has surpassed the
use of real opal. Many people prefer the look of the manmade opal
stone to the precious opal.
