Opal Fairy gathers the train of her gown, surrounded by a flurry of flowers in
shades as delicate and varied as the glowing birthstone for which she is named.
In centuries past, the opal was associated with superstition, but Queen
Victoria changed its meaning when she proudly wore opal jewelry and offered the
gemstone to each of her daughters in celebration of their nuptials. A magical
jewel, the opal is believed to render its bearer invisible, so our fairy
travels through the world unseen, seeking places of darkness that come alive
with light when she appears. Her iridescent wings reflect the colors of sunrise
and sunset as the gentle scent of rose petals remains even after she vanishes.
