Diamonds are precious gemstones, and we don’t need to tell you how popular they are. On the other hand, opals are gemstones that have been popular since antiquity. In our present era, there’s no disputing that diamonds reign as the most popular gemstone in the world — but are they the rarest? It’d be easy to associate opals as “less than” or inferior to diamonds, but that would be a grave mistake.
Opals are a magnificent product of rainfall and flash fiery colors that adorned titans and Roman leaders throughout time.
