Opal Magic & Metaphysical Properties

thumbnailca927ym9.jpgMany civilizations, cultures, and peoples have used crystals, stones, and minerals for healing and protection, not only of humans, but also for their animals and their environment.

The ancients believed that if a person wore the precious stone which, according to their tradition, was in affinity with the planets and the month of their birth, they would have protection against their enemies, sickness, accident, or even death.

In Medieval times Opal was thought to ward off illness and it was believed could confer the power of invisibility. As a protective stone Opal could help render the wearer unnoticeable or 'invisible', particularly helpful in negotiating ventures into dangerous places. The catalogue of Opal's reputed effects as a 'virtuous stone' include prevention of fainting, protection against infection and the cleansing of foul air.

A wearer would be relieved from dejection and always enjoy hope; in fact, Opal is the 'symbol of hope'. Since ancient times Opal has been considered to hold all the talismanic virtues of the other gemstones.
