Opal is the Multi–gem

True words spoken by Anthologist Terri Guillemets. Opals have been around forever. Supposedly the Romans cherished this beautiful stone 200 years before Christ. The Roman historian, Pliny, characterized the opal in eloquent words “…for in them you shall see the living fire of the ruby, the glorious purple of the amethyst, the sea green of the emerald, all glittering together in an incredible mixture of light”. I couldn’t agree more! Put an opal in the light and you have a whole array of different colors at every angle. It’s amazing how a gem can be so subtle and striking all at the same time.

At our 30th Street gallery in Virginia Beach, VA, we just recently added a new jewelry artist to our family. Brock Summs is a Virginia Beach local who hand cuts his stones and then has them set in various rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. His work is quite remarkable!
