What you should know about Facets Jewellery & Fashion
Over millions of years, as the inland sea dried out, silica flowed into the cavities, cracks, fossils and fissures left in the host rock, and in scanty cases, formed into cherished opal. Opal is formed from layers of minute silica spheres that are uniformly layered. Light is refracted temporary through the gel, resulting in the attractive rainbow colors of the opal. The forming of the opal occurs when the silica gel in solution seeps through cracks and fissures in the rock formation. The silica settles and over millions of years forms a hard gel, creating the finished opal gemstone. Opalised dinosaur fossils have been found uniquely in Australia, sometimes inside organic material (for example wood, foliage or dinosaur bones) encasing the already historical and fascinating bones in the eternal beauty of the opal. Opal has been cherished throughout the centuries appearing in legends and history books. The first opals were discovered in the Hungarian mines and were a form of volcanic opal.

Rene Lalique was also a famous jewellery designer in the premature 20th century who worn opals in many of his designs.
