Borgin necklace
A necklace adorned with opals.

An opal is a mineraloid composed mostly of silica and water. Opals can express every colour in the visible spectrum, although the most common colours are white and/or green. They are also known to cause bad luck or misfortune to some people.

Madame Maxime was known to wear opals.[1] While tidying up the cabinets next to the mantelpiece at 12 Grimmauld Place in 1995, Harry Potter came across a large blood-filled crystal bottle with a large opal set into the stopper.[2] There was a cursed opal necklace for sale at Borgin and Burkes that Draco Malfoy purchased and gave to and Imperiused Katie Bell in an attempt to assassinate Albus Dumbledore.
