Royal Doulton Royal Doulton OCTOBER OPAL Gemstones Figurine HN4979 Royal Doulton OCTOBER OPAL Gemstones Figurine HN4979
Opal is recognised as the gemstone for October - and she makes a clear, stylish statement as a display piece in the rich traditions of Royal Doulton figurines with a contemporary twist. Her lithe frame is set off by an orange strapless evening dress which hugs the figure at the top, then sweeps out from the slender waistline to touch the floor. Calm and confident in repose, this rosy-cheeked beauty with shoulder length blonde hair wears an opal crystal for understated yet lasting effect.
 
Many people know which gemstone is associated with his or her month of birth. This is probably due to the folklore associated with these stones. Early civilisations as far back as 1400 BC gave mysterious and magical powers to gemstones, believing that wearing the gemstone would give them luck or protect them. The Gemstones collection is a great way to introduce someone to the finely crafted ranges of Royal Doulton figurines. Each modern young lady features an appropriate Swarovski crystal on her chest. Each of the exquisitely modelled bone china figurines is expertly hand made and meticulously hand painted, true to the finest traditions of Royal Doulton's pedigree HN series of collectable figurines. Naturally, each one comes handsomely gift boxed with a Certificate of Authenticity, making them collectable china figurines to savour.
 
The name opal was probably derived from Sanskrit "upala", meaning "valuable stone". This was most likely the root for the Greek term "opallios", which translates as "color change". In the days of Roman antiquity there existed a so-called "opalus", or a "stone from several elements". Pliny, the famous Roman author, called Opal a gemstone which combines the best possible characteristics of the most beautiful of gemstones: the fine sparkle of Almandine, the shining purple of Amethyst, the golden yellow of Topaz, and the deep blue of Sapphire, "so that all colors shine and sparkle together in a beautiful combination". According to the legends of the Australian Aborigines, the creator came down to Earth on a rainbow, in order to bring the message of peace to all the humans. And at the very spot, where his foot touched the ground, the stones became alive and started sparkling in all the colors of the rainbow. That was the birth of the opals.

For ages people have believed in the healing power of Opal. It is reported to be able to solve depressions and to help its wearer find the true and real love.

Opal is a birthstone for those who are born in October.
