Opal, from the Sanskrit word upala, was the most valued stone during the Middle Ages because it was said that the stone held great luck and supernatural powers. Today Opal is still sought out for jewelry because of its mixture of colors of blue and green making every piece beautiful.
The Loulu Palm is one of the only species of palms that is native to Hawaii. The majority of the palm trees that you see around our islands were either migrated to the islands or were brought by other countries. One of the most famous palm trees is the Coconut Palm Tree which came to Hawaii by the Polynesians. Throughout the years Hawaiians have used the palm trees for housing, clothing, baskets, hats, and so much more.
