Opal

Opal

More Info

The prismatic bliss known as opal is a hydrated form of silicon dioxide with an amorphous character, classifying it as a mineraloid rather than the usual mineral. Opal is associated with astrological signs Aquarius and Cancer.


Origin

Australia and China


Physical Properties

A glimpse of each angle flashes a radiating multi-spectral beam that will leave you the impression of a stone harnessing the wonders of a rainbow. It has a Mohs hardness rating of 5.5 to 6.5.


Mythology

For centuries, opal has been plagued by cautionary tales and warnings of dire consequences befalling their owners. Opals were said to have the power to maim or even kill anyone foolish enough to wear the gemstone.

While much of this reputation is probably due to early jewellers’ mishandling of the brittle and fragile opal, one fictional tale, written in the 19th century, caused the collapse of Europe’s opal market for the next 50 years.


Metaphysical Properties

Opal is a crystal of the New Age, assisting you in adapting to Earth's changes and allowing inner balance to take place. It lightens your aura so that dramatic Earth changes can be accepted and integrated without causing undue physical or emotional stress.

Opals instill acceptance of anything which cannot be seen, connecting you to your Higher Self and opening you to the wisdom of ancient cultures. Because opal is watery and translucent it works with your emotions, bringing up deep emotional states to be faced and loved free.

If you are able to control your mind and focus your attention, opal will develop this aspect of your mind. Opal can be unsettling for wearers, as it attracts to you anything you carry in your heart and mind, positive or negative! Always wear it consciously and when you carry a positive attitude with you.


Usage

In the psychic or spiritual realm, opal is used for high spiritual crystal energy vibrations. It is said to be able to help you be “invisible” in situations where you don’t want to be noticed. This could be used in astral journeying as well as in daily life.

It is also said to be able to help pick up thoughts and feelings and enhance them. It is also a protective stone, said to be particularly protective in dangerous places. Opal is used in light work as a stone for strong and safe dreamwork.

You can also use opals to purify and energize your crown, earth start, frontal, heart, link, soul star, and thymus chakras.
