What Is Green Opal Made Of?
Green Opal is a form of Common Opal which displays a signature opaque green hue that can range in colour from bright, neon yellow-greens and lime-greens to rich jades and to dark olives and leafy greens.
All opals are silicates, meaning they are primarily composed of silica/silicon dioxide: other silicates include Quartz varieties and Feldspars such as Labradorite.
Opals are classed as mineraloids, not minerals, as they are not technically crystalline in structure: the varying water content and diverse non-crystalline structure in each opal means that they are classed as amorphous/ lacking a specific crystal shape, and thus they cannot truly be considered minerals, for minerals have clearly defined crystal structures.
Where Does Green Opal Come From?
Opal can be found in many countries worldwide, including the USA, Australia, and Mexico.
This Green Opal piece was sourced from Madagascar, which is renowned for being one of the best places in the world to find lovely lime-green Green Opals.
Green Opal Crystal Healing Properties
Green Opal is said by crystal healers to be a spiritually powerful stone which has many helpful practical applications.
Green Opal exudes a grounding Earth Energy, which can help its users feel attuned with nature and experience a sense of being nurtured and refreshed by the natural world.
Green stones, such as Green Opal, Tree Agate/ Moss Agate, Malachite, Green Moonstone, and Green Fluorite, are symbolic of new life, new beginnings, and growth, and so are the perfect stones to use during times of change and when in need of refreshment and revitalisation.
Green Opal is therefore a very calming stone, great to use during turbulent times as a balm for stress and anxiety.
Green Opal, like other green crystals (including Tree Agate/ Moss Agate, Malachite, Green Moonstone, and Green Fluorite), is also said to attract good luck, wealth, abundance, and prosperity along one's journey of personal growth.
Green Opal Chakras
As a green stone, Green Opal resonates strongly with the Heart Chakra and is said to have a nurturing, loving energy.
Green Opal is a brilliant stone to use when working with the Heart Chakra, as crystal healers believe that Green Opal can help heal rifts in relationships and nurture an inner sense of compassion towards yourself and others.
Green Opal can also be used with the Heart Chakra as a way of soothing and calming strong emotions.
To optimise your connection to the Heart Chakra when using Green Opal, why not combine a piece of Green Opal with other powerful green Heart Chakra crystals such as Tree Agate/ Moss Agate, Malachite, Green Moonstone, or Green Fluorite?
How Hard Is Green Opal?
Measuring 5.5 to 6 on the Mohs scale, this mineral is at a medium level of softness: it is not as hard as Quartz.
Therefore, care should be taken to not damage the crystal surface by handling the stone gently and keeping it away from other stones.
Green Opal Crystal Collections
This stunning Green Opal Palm Stone would make a fine addition to any crystal collection.
For crystal healers interested in green Heart Chakra crystals, and other collectors of green stones, a piece of Green Opal would fit perfectly alongside a specimen of Tree Agate/ Moss Agate, Malachite, Green Moonstone, or Green Fluorite.
