Opalite is not a traditional gemstone because it is man-made and does not occur in nature. As a result, it is more readily available than the natural opal that inspires it. This, however, does not diminish the luminous beauty and many intrinsic benefits of the man-made crystal. Opalite shares the same basic chemical properties as Opal and is rated between 5.5 and 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. Opalite is made of tiny spheres of silicon dioxide which stack onto each other in a pyramid grid shape. This grid is what allows the cat’s eye effect to be displayed when the stone is cut into a high domed cabochon.
Opalite improves communication on all levels, especially the spiritual. It removes energy blockages of the chakras and meridians. Emotionally, Opalite helps by assisting during transitions of all kinds. It engenders persistence and gives us strength in verbalizing our hidden feelings.
