∆ Topaz...The name topaz comes from the Sanskrit and means fire. During the Middle Ages topaz was thought to heal both physical and mental disorders and prevent death. The Greeks believed it had power to increase strength and to make its wearer invisible while the Romans believed it had power to improve eyesight. The Egyptians wore it as an amulet to protect them from injury.
Ethiopian opal . Honeycomb pattern. In general, I steer clear of Ethiopian opal due to it being susceptible to clouding and then disintegrating. One piece of this pattern would be nice for my collection.
