Event description

Description

Opal is known for its unique display of flashing rainbow colors called play-of-color. There are two broad classes of opal: precious and common. Because opal has the colors of other gems, the Romans thought it was the most precious and powerful of all. The Bedouins believed that opals contained lightning and fell from the sky during thunderstorms. When Australia’s mines began to produce opals commercially in the 1890s, it quickly became the world’s primary source for this October birthstone. This GIA talk will provide an in-depth cultural background on a gemstone that has been wildy misunderstood throughout history. Expect an interesting and exciting introduction to Opals and the many different types that exist in the world!

GIA is a nonprofit institute dedicated to research and education in the field of gemology and the jewelry arts. GIA's instructors share their professional expertise and indepth knowledge on gemstones and minerals.

今個月的GIA講座,將深入了解蛋白石的起源和歷史中的演化。以彩虹般的「游彩」光澤而聞名的蛋白石,集寶石之美於一身,自古以來一直深受羅馬人的寵愛;傳說中,貝都因人更相信它是在雷電之中從天而降的寶物,內裡蘊藏著閃電。而澳州礦業在 1890年代開展了蛋白石的商業化生產後,蛋白石隨之成為公認的十月誔生石。是次講座絕對會令大家眼界大開,並投入到蛋白石的幻彩世界中!
