quote of the day

-- Quote of the Day --

Re: the opal

"There is in them a softer fire than the ruby, there is the brilliant purple of the amethyst, 

and the sea green of the emerald - all shining together in incredible union.  

Some by their splendor rival the colors of the painters, 

others the flame of burning sulphur 

or of fire quickened by oil."  

~ Pliny
