Green Opal is a stone that's all about the heart. This crystal is here to provide nourishing and rejuvenating energies to anyone struggling with emotional heartache. Its a perfect stone for anyone who may have gone through recent trauma or grief, the dissolution of a relationship, or a hurtful disagreement. Green Opal helps us find the strength that we used to have, while encouraging us to use it to push forward and rebuild. This stone shows us that we do in fact only need ourselves in this life, and should be a daily reminder of the inner strength we truly posses.
Green Opal is also a stone that is here to calm you down during hyper-emotional times. When held, it’s soothing energies can be felt to the touch. We recommend anyone who does struggle with their emotions to meditate with a piece of Green Opal. Doing so will not only calm the emotions but also slow your mind down. It's important for us to take a step away from everyday life and put ourselves first for a moment. Meditating with Green Opal repeatedly will help one fully open and cleanse their heart of all unwanted emotions.
If you are someone who struggles with constant daydreaming, Green Opal can help. This stone assists in clearing one's mind and raising awareness of one’s surroundings. Constantly we forget to take in our environment due to the number of distractions around us. Green Opal reminds us to live in the moment and enjoy what’s around us, not what’s distracting us.
Green Opal works well with other heart stones such as Rhodonite, Green Calcite, Rose Quartz, and Amazonite. These stones together help in the opening and cleansing of one's heart. For anyone looking to ground themselves during meditation, we recommend using Black Tourmaline, Hematite, or Galena.
Be careful not to leave your Opal in direct sunlight. Opals are comprised of water, and direct sunlight can dry the stone out and ultimately cause it to break.
