Gemstone: Opalite

Due to my increase in curiosity with the story behind gemstones, I decided to include a little bit of section in this blog.

First of, OPALITE.

Opalite is also referred to as Tiffany Stone.  Why it is called such totally beats my mind, even after countless of research I made on it.   I’d be more than happy if any of my readers enlightened me on this 🙂

Anyway, as I was saying, opalite is considered an all-around healing stone. It removes energy blocks and helps combat fatigue. It also purifies the blood and kidneys. Business-wise, it promotes success. It also helps stabilize mood swings and promote relaxation. It is beneficial for those who suffer from sleep disorders. Opalite enhances emotional strength and helps to ease transitions.

Although opalite is often confused with opal, they are not the same. Opalite is composed of mostly opalized dolomite and fluorite, whereas opal has a composition of silicon, oxygen and hydrogen.

Treasury Update

Show me more love! 🙂

I panic!

Packages of beautiful stones arrived in the mail over the last two weeks and I instantly got excited!

As you can see I have agate, lots of chalcedony, carnelian, rock crystal, jasper, garnet, lucite and lots lots more.  This was my first purchase abroad (meaning: outside the Philippines).  The investment was more than what I usually spend on stones here, but the quality of these are way much better.

I can’t wait to execute the designs that are already crowding my head!

Here are some of what I made:

Everything is now available at my etsy shop.
