PInk Opal is considered a common Opal (one that does not have the ‘fire’ or flashy luminescence) However, pink opal is rare color for a common opal with the presence of quinones, organic compounds often found in plants, that enter the stone during formation causing it to be pink in color. Pink opals have a fascinating history - just to name a few - it has been called the stone of hope by ancient Egyptians who used to adorn their pharos in pink opal crowns before undergoing large construction projects, it was named one of the 7 sacred stones by native americans and it was thought to be a calming stone to help one stay rational in relationships by the Romans.
