  1. That is an interesting poem. If ‘the national gemstone produced most bounteously in Australia’, I wonder where the hammer that I use for slapping the thunder was produced in.

  2. I read a wonderful story, about how the opal came to have such wonderful colours, when I was a child. It was in a book of children’s stories called “On a Pincushion”. A variety of pins & brooches reside together on a pincushion, in a jewelry box. They take it in turns to relate stories from their ‘lives’. The opal is last & tells a wonderful, but sad, tale of true love between a sunbeam & moonbeam.

    You have created a wonderful site here. Congratulations & thank you for visiting my fledgling blog 🙂

    • That is indeed an imaginative and heuristic story for children, which must have been so well written that it still registers in your memory. Thank you for sharing here.

      We both have fairly new blogs to the extent that SoundEagle only really started blogging meaningfully and consistently since August 2012. Time and energy are always in short supply, given my caretaking duties and other responsibilities.

  7. I used to be superstitious about Opal especially as my birthstone is Moonstone/Ruby. Then my geologist husband pointed out that you are only unlucky if you don’t own a beautiful opal! I now have a lovely opal band.

  8. How beautiful! Who knew? I always thought of opals as just rather plain, white stones. Thanks for sharing these beauties!
