Crystal Of The Week - Opalite


Alot of people often mistake Opalite for Opal, but in fact, Opalite is actually man made glass! Where as Opal is actually a stone which looks very similar bucomes from the ground. But don't be dissapointed.. It is still a crystal and has some really amazing properties! 

But how does it have healing and helping properties that are so amazing and powerful if it's just man made glass? 

I like to look at Opalite the same way I see a mirror, mirrors are used alot in spirituality, people use them to see their past lives and some people believe they are a connection between other realms and the spiritual world. Mirrors reflect light and thus reflect the world around us. Spiritually, light has symbolic attachment to illumination, awareness and wisdom etc. Therefore, in terms of spiritual symbolism, mirrors reflect truth. They reflect what is. 

Opalite reflects light much the same way. If you have ever seen Opalite in person in all its beauty, you will see how mesmerising it is, you can't take your eyes away from the stunning tint of the bluey white glass. It sparkles in the sunshine and moonlight and reflects alot of light. 

Opalite improves communication on all levels, especially the spiritual. It removes energy blockages of the chakras and meridians. Emotionally, Opalite helps by assisting during transitions of all kinds. It engenders persistence and gives us strength in verbalising our hidden feelings. 

Becuase of this, it is a really great crystal if you are exploring your spiritual side and trying to connect to a greater conscience level, this stone will help open your 3rd eye and your psychic powers. It's also an amazing stone to wear during meditation, as it clears the mind and helps you gain clarity of your thoughts and hear what your higher self is trying to tell you. It's also a great stone for helping you communicate what you want to say clearly, so wear this stone when ever you feel you need to be heard or understood properly.
