Spiritual Properties of Opals
Opals are associated with purification, emotional healing, calming, and protection. They are mined in Australia, Mexico, Peru, South America, Canada, United States, Honduras, and Slovakia. Opal is associated with love, passion, and eroticism, known for intensifying emotions and releasing inhibitions. It is a protective stone, useful for entering dangerous situations. It brings loyalty, faithfulness, and spontaneity into romantic relationships. Opal gemstones strengthen the will to live, and have extensive healing powers. They are excellent for infections, childbirth, vision, and the blood.
~Boulder opal is found in Australia where precious opal forms in patches and veins within brown ironstone boulders.
~A doublet opal is not a solid opal. Doublets are made of thin slices of fine quality opal (generally light opal) glued to a backing piece of black potch, glass or Queensland ironstone, thus resembling natural black opal or Queensland boulder opal.
~Peruvian opals are found only in the Andes mountains of Peru. Peruvian opals are considered a gift from Pachamama, the ancient Inca goddess of fertility and Mother Earth. Unlike the better known opals with a display of shimmering color, Peruvian opals are usually solid Caribbean blue or ballerina slipper pink. Depending on the cut of the opal, Peruvian opals can be scenic with variations in color, or uniform in color.
~Owyhee opals are mined along the Owyhee River that runs through Nevada, Idaho, and Oregon.
