Opal Gemstone meaning
Opal was formed many millions of years ago, when a combination of silica and water flowed into cracks and spaces in the ground. This then gradually hardened and solidified to become opal. Opals contain water, which makes them very sensitive to heat. They are soft and can be cracked or chipped easily. Opals should be stored in moist absorbent cotton.
Black Opal is a stone of sexual attractiveness. It is often used to lead one into a higher spiritual experience. It is useful in balancing all chakras.
The opal is said to be many things including the most powerful of healing stones, the stone of hope, the stone
of great achievement and even the "stone of the Gods". Ancient Romans associated opal with hope and good luck.
