Blue Opal, also known as Andean or Peruvian Opal, is a variety of Common Opal that does not carry that “opal fire”. It is a lovely pale blue to blue-green stone to keep with you as it helps to bring the joy back into your life.

A stone of communication and creativity, Blue Opal allows you to speak your mind without fear or recrimination. It can help you believe in your own abilities and attract like-minded people into your life.

Blue Opal can be used for protection during spiritual journeying or astral travel. Acting like a GPS, the Blue Opal can help you to select and locate a specific time or place that will aid you in your understanding. Blue Opal is often used to induce the hypnotic state or facilitate divination.

Physically, Blue Opal is said to balance the metabolism, help with mineral absorption and iron deficiency, ease fatigue and soothe childhood illnesses.

Note: Because Opals contain water, do not leave them in sunlight or they will become brittle and break.

  Just purchased a blue opal ring in Mariposa California. Also picked up some Mariposa stones which only are found in that area. When wet with water they really come alive. I love my new finds!!!  (Submitted by: Brownie on September 18, 2019)
