About the stone: Opal is a variety of quartz known as hydrated silicon dioxide. The material contains water and does not crystallize like other members of the quartz family. Opal comes in many colors with or without the play of color. This phenomenon is caused by spheres of varying size and the formation of opal is the solidification of a silica gel that generally is found in seams or veins. More rarely it is found in massive form exhibiting botryoidal growth or in stalagmitic form as well as a replacement pseudomorph in fossils.
Astrological sign(s): Pisces, Libra
Planet(s): Saturn, Ceres, Neptune, Venus
Mohs scale: 5.5–6
Spiritual uses: The watery vibration of opal makes this stone a perfect tool for connecting with the devic forces of water, including all the devas of the undine family such as mermaids, mermen, and water sprites.
