Referred to as the stone of change the green opal is known to strengthen relationships, activating the heart chakra but taking on wood energy. Thought to inspire hope and optimism, it is also said to boost the will to live and the joy of one’s earthly existence.
Opal is also known for its ability to bring one’s traits and characteristics to the surface for examination and transformation. Sometimes this can be very uncomfortable. Just as Opal absorbs and reflects light, it picks up thoughts and feelings, desires and buried emotions, amplifying them and returning them to the source so while magnifying one’s negative attributes may prove to be uncomfortable, it allows for understanding how destructive these emotions can be and assists the process of letting them go. It also reflects the positive aspects as well, reminding us that what we send out will be returned.
