About White Opal
White Opal has been seen as a symbol of wealth and status for centuries. It was believed to possess all the virtues of each gemstone whose colour was represented in the iridescence of the opal – red of rubies, purple of amethyst and green of emerald.
The name opal most likely comes from the goddess Ops of the Roman religion, who was the goddess of earth and fertility. “Ops” means plenty and for this reason opal has long carried the meaning of prosperity – in wealth, health and love.

Physical Healing Properties
Do you experience sexual dysfunction or fertility issues? Do you suffer from frequent respiratory illness or headaches?
White opal has a strong association with water because it is created when water is trapped in silica. For this reason, opal can have an effect on the flow of biological substances that contain water, like lymph and reproductive fluids.
White opal can also be used to ease the symptoms of headaches, respiratory illness and insomnia by harmonizing with the crown chakra. Try meditating with opal placed on or above the crown chakra before sleep and see if you experience an easing of symptoms.
