Opal - color/happiness/self-esteem
October/water/14th year

  • Its spirit is said to be a child playing, dashing color wherever it pleases. Opal is known as an inspiration stone, and it useful in creating art, or bring creativity and excitement to life.
  • Opal contains water inside of it, which is said to be like water running over rocks and roots that lie in its path. Opal stimulates perseverance. It can help to push through obstacles in life.
  • Used for high spiritual vibrations. Makes the user “invisible” to situations where they wouldn’t want to be noticed. This is beneficial when astral journeying.
  • Brings energy to promote self-worth and self-esteem. Happy dreams are also stimulated.

Visual guide to the Five Main Types of Opal

White or light opal: Translucent to semitranslucent, with play-of-color against a white or light gray background color.

Black opal: Translucent to opaque, with play-of-color against a black or other dark background.

Fire opal: Transparent to translucent, with brown, yellow, orange, or red bodycolor. This material—which often doesn’t show play-of-color—is also known as “Mexican opal.”

Boulder opal: Translucent to opaque, with play-of-color against a light to dark background. Fragments of the surrounding rock, called matrix, become part of the finished gem.

Crystal or water opal: Transparent to semitransparent, with a clear background. This type shows exceptional play-of-color.
