Opals rough guide and worth
Opal is one of the most beautiful and enchanting gems on earth, mostly because of its origins, iridescences and lights.
There's a huge variety of opals in the world, depending usually on the colours, frailty and iridescence patterns, exactly like the 4 C's for Diamonds (Opals-Quality Factors of the Gemological Institute of America-GIA). The opal is composed of silica and water: when the water evaporates and precipitates at low temperatures to form layers or nodules of opal in fissures, veins, and cavities of volcanic and sedimentary rocks, it generates some silica deposits; it's a procedure that protracts during millennia as at the same time is very simple.
Easter has always been linked to eggs: decorated, painted, wooden, chocolate eggs..
There are various traditions connected to eggs throughout centuries, starting from Roman, Greek, Chinese, Persian and last but not least Egyptian culture (link).
An exchange of decorated eggs took place during spring cults or at the equinox due to the belief that eggs represent resurrection and the image of the Earth and Sky.
With the beginning of Christianity they kept being the symbol of resurrection and during the Middle Age began eating consecrated eggs before the easter banquet.
