History + Lore: Opal is derived from the Latin word 'Upala' and the Greek word 'opallios', meaning “precious stone”. In Greek mythology, Opal was believed to be formed from the joyous tears wept by Zeus after he defeated the Titans. Chrysoprase is found in Australia and is a form of chalcedony. Chalcedony is known to be one of the earliest natural materials used by man for weapons, tools, bowls and utensils. It is often mistaken for green Imperial Jadeite due to similar coloration.
