The OPAL stands for hope, purity, health and innocence. Many believe that those who wear the Opal will be treated to a greater understanding of life’s possibilities and will discover new and different views of the world they live in. Opals are also believed to assist in healing. Opal’s fire carries a spiritual energy that burns through attachments, wounds, and negative patterns. It can amplify your emotions, bringing semi-conscious patterns to the surface of your awareness to be dealt with. When these are cleared, it also amplifies joy. Regarded as a stone strongly associated with the emotions, including love and passion, it is also thought to promote spontaneity, imagination, dreams and healing.
