Healing Properties of Boulder OpalThe staff from my new age shop, Mimosa Books & Gifts, had this to share:

Opal is a variety of microcrystalline quartz in which water particles have become trapped between layers of silicon dioxide. This water refracts light, giving opal an inner “fire”.

When the crystal forms in an enclosed space where the water can’t evaporate, the crystal-plus-water gel hardens to form opal. This stone may contain other impurities as well, which is why opal comes in a rainbow of colors.


Opal Lore:

Healing Properties of Boulder OpalA lot of opal lore begins with the notion that in some sense opal is alive, maybe because of the play of colors that comes when you move the stone. Because of this living quality, opal was the original “mood stone,” sparkling when its owner was happy, or shooting fire if the owner was angry.

Quite a few stories about opal talk about misfortune. For example, Queen Victoria loved opals, so for her coronation she chose an opal pin to fasten the back of her off-the-shoulders dress. When the pin popped out during the ceremony, the world got to see a little more of the young queen than was considered proper at the time. Of course, the Opal was blamed.

A darker legend comes from Australia, currently, the main place opal is mined. Miners there talk about the mysterious “night stones,” or opals that are so fiery they’re said to glow in the dark. They would descend into the mines at midnight to find them–a practice that no doubt added to the mystery of the stones, but caused a lot of accidents as well. Because of these and many other similar stories, some people call opal “beautiful but dangerous.”

Care and Safety: Due to their water content, opals can be fragile and water-sensitive, and can also be damaged by excessive drying. It’s best to store them in a cool place, away from direct sunlight or moisture. They should never be used in elixirs.

  1. […] Opals have a history & reputation for bringing bad luck and curses, perhaps this is one of the reasons JK Rowling chose it as the stone for the cursed necklace given to Katie Bell by Draco Malfoy in an attempt to assassinate Albus Dumbledore. […]
