Opal Crystals

Opal Crystals

Opals are gorgeous stones that come in multiple colors and offer various benefits to the owner. Although opal crystals are referred to as crystals, they’re actually mineraloids. Made of miniscule silica deposit, they have a high-water content that gives the stone such a gorgeous translucent appearance.

The Origin of Opal Crystals

Opal has a long history and has gone through several name modifications. Opal’s original meaning was “precious stone.” Through the centuries, however, it has also meant “to see a change in color” and “the Eye Stone,” which perfectly describes its glassy and reflective properties.

Opal Crystal Properties

Just like opal reflects and absorbs light, it also reflects the mood and emotions of the user. It picks up on hidden emotions and buried desires and brings them to the surface. This might seem intrusive and unpleasant, but ultimately, it leads to a better understanding of your feelings and helps solve problems.

As opal is an October birthstone, it embodies water element energy connected to wisdom, intuition, flow, and change. It also encourages freedom and creativity.

Opal Crystal Colors

As mentioned, opal comes in various colors and types. You can choose between the precious opal, also called “rainbow opal,” which acts like a prism and shows different colors under light. Common opal is milky and doesn’t show different colors, while fire opal, the third type, has red, orange, and yellow colors.

Opal can also be blue, green, black, and pink. Pink opal is a popular choice for gifts as it promotes love, healing, and compassion. Black opal helps with distress, while white opal represents new beginnings.
