Opal partakes of “the Iridescents” – the group of stones that includes Labradorite – and plays (in a multicolored way) with color. That necessarily involves it with the Imagination, Dream Time, the Subconscious. That scares people – ’cause they can’t “nail it down” and compartmentalize it – leading some to think it’s connected to bad luck (people often fear what they don’t understand).
I disagree – I don’t have an issue with any of the Opals. White Opal I think has to do with real fortitude: strength – a bit like the Herkimer Diamond. However, there are many other types of Opal – and as if often the case with stones – each piece and each type has its own energy. Particularly with the Opals, that means each can be dramatically different from the others.
I’ll only be picturing ones I’ve owned, so you won’t see every variety here.
Opals without light play are Green and Pink Opal, from Madagascar and Peru, respectively. They have totally different feels. I’ll get into that on the individual image descriptions.
