blood opal fire shines brighter turning within isolated I Am life found within the solitude of a bad dream a heart stone burning bright shot with amorphous lines milky blue veined jet ink ripped words forgotten in a lost brain buried in hands now writing new Sanskrit something calls precious, shining, in the turn of darkness from the ebony time jewels formed in a mind held up to the Light turning different colours Opallios rare, exquisite in the bad time (LadyLabyrinth / 2020)
“Hold Your Breath” / Ruelle
The term “opal” is believed to have originated from the Sanskrit word “upala”, which means “precious stone,” the Greeks called it “Opallios,” that literally means “to perceive a change of color.” "Black opal is the rarest and most valuable of all opals and is generally found as a bar of various colours in a dark body." "It literally glows in the dark. In fact, as it gets darker around the opal, the opal appears ever more vibrant." "Red is the rarest and most sought out color. In order of value, the most valuable color is red, then orange, green, blue and purple. However, Opal is usually never a single color."
Lyrics/"Hold Your Breath", Ruelle

Opals are mysterious. I put them way above pearls. x
