Opal stone meaning foster love, passion, loyalty, faithfulness, emotional expressiveness, warmth, spontaneity and dramatic ability. Opal also associated with peace, and consciousness. Sometimes considered unlucky, but
this is only because modern people fear their emotional side. Its a very emotionally responsive stone.

Opal stone is unique in the gem kingdom. In Roman times opal was, next to emerald, the most valuable gem. The enthusiasm which opal arouses in artists and poets is not too extravagant. White opal scintillates against a
solid background, which is always light, either white or tinted some pale color. OPAL is a hydrate of silica, consisting of from 90 to 95 of silica, and 5 to 10 of water. By reflected light it displays the most beautiful iridescent
colors, green, yellow, red, blue, violet.

Opal is fine stones are extremely rare, and seldom large. This variety is called the Harlequin opal. Golden opal is a term applied to that variety in which only one color, an orange-yellow, is present. The largest opal known is in
the Imperial Cabinet of Vienna. The precious opal (as opposed to regular opals) contains the beauty, the reflected energy that is called fire opal.

The precious opal and the beautiful fire opal are very emotional stones. It is a rather brittle stone, not an especially stable one. It is not true that opals must be kept in water in order not to dry out. lf they are properly created
and processed, they do keep their beauty, their fire. Generally they are put into cabochons.

Common opal doesn’t have any fire, so its energy is not the same. Black opals from Australia are quite rare and therefore quite valuable, but they are not appropriate for spiritual use. They are not as evolved and just
haven’tgotten it all together yet.

Here Some Variation of Opal stone and their meanings ;

Black Opal stone meaning promotes cosmic awareness and oceanic consciousness.

Boulder Opal stone meaning foster creativity and originality.

Fire Opal stone meaning inspires dynamic energy and intensity.

Sonoma Opal stone meaning induces emotional stability.

White Opal stone meaning enhances competency and efficiency.

The opal stone should not be worn with anything except diamonds – or by itself. Diamonds will enhance it, but rubies, sapphires, pearls and amethyst are not appropriate. These other gems cause imbalance and cancel out
the specific emanation that would allow a holistic application of its beauty as a healing stone or for spiritual attunement to the Source level itself. The opal becomes imbalanced and then it acquires a bad reputation by being
placed within a setting that is not conducive to its use.

Opals may come from Australia, Mexico or the United States. Some of the most beautiful, valuable and evolved stones are the Mexican ones, but generally they are not as spiritually attuned in their evolution. It is generally
accepted that Australia’s opals are some of the very best. It is their fire and the range of their fire that indicates their spiritual attunement. Some have green, some blue, some violet, but I like themulticolored stones.

Black OpalsBlack Opals

Black opal is characterized by a dark body tone causing brightness of color which is unmatched by lighter opals. Black Opals are mined in Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, and are the most famous, and sought-after type of opal. The term 'black opal' does not mean that the stone is completely black (a common mistake), it simply means the stone has a dark body tone in comparison to a white opal.

Black/Dark Blue: One of the most potent. Although Opal was regarded as a stone of misfortune, black Opal is considered an exceptionally lucky stone. It is said that if you dream of Opals, you will receive great possessions.

 

Black OpalsBlack Opals See self as Soul. I find this stone is great for helping one see the possibilities of how one can be all they can be. This stone seems to strengthen bones too.

Black: Is known to enhance sexual attractiveness, as well as leading one to a higher spiritual experience. One of the strongest good luck stones. It is told to transform the fears that hold us back from action into optimism and an eagerness to get on with our lives.
Black-Brown-Gray: Particularly useful for releasing sexual tension that arises from an emotional cause, as well as for processing and integrating newly found or released emotions. Black opals will absorb pain and/or illness, replacing it with a healing rainbow of light. It may ease chronic bone problems or weaknesses and any disease deep within the body tissue. Use it to counter side effects fro modern x-ray or laser treatments as well as to reduce the toxicity of necessary chemical treatments.
Black opals are prized by magicians and Wiccans as strong power stones. More recently in Wiccan rituals used as God stone (white opal being the Goddess stone) Black opal amplifies power magically and an amulet of black opal attracts good fortune.
Black-Brown-Grey: resonates with the 2nd, Sacral or Navel Chakra as well as the reproductive organs. Use with fluorite to clean the aura and prevent cording.

White Opals

White Opals 

Also known as 'milky opal', white opal features light white body tones, and is mined in South Australia. White opal is more common and because of its body tone, generally does not show the color as well as black opal. Nevertheless, white opals can still be absolutely magnificent in color if a good quality stone is found.

White: Greatly increases general productivity through activation of the necessary glands. Regularizes the biorhythms of the wearing, avoiding discordant energies which may lead to uncontrolled behavior between frantic activity or total inactivity. Harmonizing desire, creating lovemaking rather than pure appetite, restores pleasure to eating which alleviates food related disorders.

White: Balances Left and Right Brain.. Opals are extremely sensitive and must be treated with great care.

Some literature states frankly that many who wear this stone have a fickle nature. Black-Brown-Gray: Particularly useful for releasing sexual tension that arises from an emotional cause, as well as for processing and integrating newly found or released emotions.

Boulder Opals

Boulder opal forms on ironstone boulders in Queensland. This type of opal is often cut with the ironstone left on the back, as the opal seam is usually quite thin. Leaving the ironstone on the back means that boulder opal can be very dark and beautiful in color. The opal forms within the cavities of the boulders in both vertical and horizontal cracks. Boulders vary in shape and size, from as small as a pea, to as big as a family car. Boulder Opal has a tendency to cleave; when cleaved the "split" leaves two faces of opal, with a naturally polished face. This phenomenon is due to the angle the microstructure of the opal originally grew. The opal cutter commonly finishes the opal, with the natural opal veneer exposed with ironstone backing. Although Queensland produces other forms of opal, sandstone opal as pipe and seam and matrix, which are often found at the same mine, it is the Boulder Opal that is most sought.

Fluorescent minerals contain particles in their structure known as activators, which respond to ultraviolet light by giving off a visible glow.
