Black Opal is a variety of Common Opal that is usually opaque. This variety is most commonly found in mass form and is a very popular material to cut into palm stones, carvings, and jewelry. Other colors such as brown, white, grey, and beige can be found running throughout large Black Opal specimens. Some of the nicest pieces of Black Opal have been pulled out of Oregon although Australia has been known to have an abundance of this mineral.
Black Opal offers protection for the emotional body and aura. It provides an etheric shield against negative energy and emotional toxicity. It helps with staying calm and relaxed in anxiety-producing situations.
Black Opal helps to "free our fears", allowing us to take on new and exciting adventures and act on spontaneous ideas. By being able to just “do” and not “think”, we will not have the time to ponder hypothetical situations or worry about things that won’t happen. Black Opal is a great stone to carry with you all the time.
