Opalite is a soft and subtle, iridescent man-made glass resin. To the naked eye, it’s undeniably beautiful, composed of the mineral dolomite fused with metal to create a stunning opalescent appearance that’s typically clear or milky; it may also appear green, blue, pink, lavender, or yellow. Also known as purple opal, opalized fluorite, ice cream opal, and Tiffany stone, opalite is revered in crystal healing for properties believed to purify the blood and kidneys, and several metaphysical qualities as well.
Opalite is a stone of personal power, with the potential to increase self-esteem and improve a person’s sense of self-worth. The stone also supports inner strength to uncover and express deeper, buried feelings.
Emotionally, opalite is valuable during times of great change, like moving to a new home, changing jobs, getting into or out of a relationship, or having a new baby. Under this stone’s guidance, transitions can be made more smoothly.
Known as a merchant stone that facilitates success in business, opalite is believed to manifest wealth by improving business skills in communication and interpersonal interaction. This energizing stone also fosters persistence and the ability to overcome exhaustion and fatigue.
Opalite is a brilliant meditation aid partly because it gives off a calming and relaxing energy, but also because it’s associated with opening up the third eye chakra associated with intuition, insight, and vision. Because of this, the stone may induce visions and enhance psychic powers when placed over the crown chakra. Opalite is powerful in spiritual communication, helping to send out and receive messages to and from the spirit world, and helping to interpret those messages and visions.
Opalite is as energizing as it is calming and relaxing. No wonder it’s known for boosting the libido, stimulating sexual prowess, and enhancing the overall sexual experience.
The yin and the yang represent male and female, light and dark, active and passive, and daytime and nighttime energies. Opalite helps balance these, aligning them with the higher self. On a grounded level, this can stabilize mood. By the same token, the stone also clears blockages in the chakras and energy meridians of the body.
