Ruby Fuchsite meaning:

This is a very Virgo-ish stone. Virgo loves to be of service. This stone puts the joy back into taking care of others, especially around organization, holistic medicine, and counseling. It stimulates your awareness of what is good and enjoyable in your everyday life so that you can remember to enjoy the journey. 

Virgo rules the Hermit in tarot.  Hermits are experts at creating sacred space for themselves and insulating themselves from the negativity of the world.  Same goes for this semi-precious stone.  You will especially benefit from its companionship if you are in the vicinity of judgmental, critical or negative people.

Ruby Fuchsite properties:

Excellent stone for those in the healing, counseling and management professions.  

Ethiopian Opal meaning:  

Tools have been discovered made of Ethiopian Opal that date back to 4000 BC.   

Scholars differ on where the word opal originated.  One theory is that it is derived from the root Latin word opalus, while others say it actually stems from the Sanskrit word úpala.  And another theory is that it is derived from the root ancient Greek word, opallios. 

Upala started to appear in Rome around 250 BC in references to opals being the most highly valued gemstones.  Merchants from Bosporus brought them from India.  

Pliny the Elder, the Roman naturalist and philosopher, 23 to 79 AD, wrote about opals associating them with the fertility, opulence and wealth of the wife of Roman god Saturn.  Her name was Ops, which sounds kind of like a nickname for Opal. 

Opallios, the ancient Greek word, had two interpretations.  It could mean seeing or it could mean alias or an alternate choice.   When opallios was used for how one saw something, it was like the English word, opaque.  There's the op again.  Put them together, and you've got seeing alternative colors.  Certainly seems plausible until scholars asserted that this ancient Greek term didn't even show up anywhere until after the Roman seized the Greek states around 180 BC.  Before that, the Romans used the word paederos to mean those things.  That seems to confirm the Sanskrit origin.

From 400 to 1400 AD, opals were super popular as they were considered divine and bringers of good luck.  The rainbow of colors were interpreted as divine virtues and that opals possessed all the positive qualities of other gemstones that were of colors seen in the opal.  

Opals fell out of favor due to a popular novel written in 1829 by Sir Walter Scott.  The novel is Anne of Geierstein.  The Baroness character wears a lucky opal that is supposed to have special powers.  All is good until a drop of holy water splashes on her opal which causes it lose all of its color.  Then the Baroness dies.  This book was a bestseller and the readers began to think of opals as bringers of bad luck and even death.  After the book had been out for only a  year, opal sales went down by fifty percent and stayed down for another twenty years.

Other Ethiopian opal properties:

The Russians used to believe that an opal was omen of evil.  If a merchant showed up with an opal, all trading stopped.  This was going on as in the early 1900's.  

Wicca folks would wrap an opal in a freshly picked bay leaf and hold it to be invisible, more convenient than Harry Potter's invisibility cloak.

Ethiopian healing properties:  According to Gurudas' channeled material in Gem Elixirs and Vibrational Healing, Volume 1, Cassandra Press, 1985, "this opal strengthens the abdomen, pituitary and thymus, and there is a mild impact on the pineal gland.  And the left and right hemispheres of the brain are balanced.  Thus, light opal can be used to ease autism, dyslexia, epilepsy, neurological discharge problems, physical coordination problems visual problems, and to enhance the pineal and pituitary glands.  On the cellular level, the white corpuscles are stimulated."
