Blue Opal resembles the Caribbean blue sea.  This soothing light blue colored stone is translucent to opaque in appearance.  It is mostly found in the Andes Mountains in Peru, Canada, and Oregon in the United States.

Blue Opal has a plethora of historical background.  In Greek mythology blue opal was formed from the joyful tears of Zesus after defeating the Titans.  Ancient Greece believed it provided the wearer with clairvoyant abilities. Arabic myths believed the Gods sent the stone through heaven on lightning bolts. Incas claimed the gem was a gift from the earth goddess, Pachamama.  Blue opals were symbols of hope and innocence in Europe.  Almost every society has viewed opal as a symbol of luck.
