October's Birthstone: OPAL

It is said that opal, with its display of fire, can spark creativity, and that the "dance" of its fire can help people enjoy their lives. European cultures have long believed opal is a symbol of hope, purity and truth.


In Greek mythology, opals were considered the stone form of the tears that Zeus wept after the defeat of the titans.  Indian lore considers it part of the Goddess of Rainbows after she turned to stone to avoid the romantic advances of other gods.  It was considered by all in the ancient world to be the most bewitching and mysterious of gems.


In the metaphysical world, opal acts as a prism within the aura, bringing a full spectrum of Light energy to the system, soothing and clearing the emotional body, and boosting the will to live and the joy of one’s earthly existence. It enkindles optimism, enthusiasm and creativity, and allows for the release of inhibitions inspiring love and passion. Opal enhances cosmic consciousness and stimulates flashes of intuition and insight, yet is a protective stone for deep inner work, meditations, and lower world shamanic journeys.
