Crystals have alignment and Healing Properties <3

So, from a metaphysical perspective what does this stone do? Well firstly like all opal or opalites, the structure is spherical rather than lineal like most other crystals. That is why opals work so well with the emotions - rather than belting down the front door with an issue they work their way around it, flow through the crevices of our protections and get at issues obliquely and hence less confrontationally. Its easy sometimes to "fend off" some crystals when the emotional issues are painful and we just don't want to deal with them - its virtually impossible to do with an opal because it just wraps you in its energy and there's no escape - so opals are never for the faint-hearted - you WILL deal with that issue no matter how strong your protections normally are :-)
Now a little about Peruvian pink opal because it is rather unique in the opal family of stones. Despite being pink its not a soft, calming "cotton wool" kind of energy - rather its incredibly vibrant and stimulating - it raises the spirits and elevates your mood. I always find I smile around this stone - I don't know why but it just makes you smile - you can't help it or resist it.

Some have described it as a type of euphoria and I suppose that's true but not of the kind where you "check your brain at the door" - its just like it attunes you to the pulse of love and produces this almost immediate shift of mood.

Aside from its benefit as a mood enhancer, Peruvian Pink Opal/ite teaches us not to judge a book by its cover - to set aside our preconceived expectations and see things for what they truely are. That is far more important than it sounds because our expectations (either of good or bad things happening) limit our experiences. A terrific opportunity may be staring you in the face but because of your assumptions and expectations - mostly due to the past - you ignore it, assuming that it will just turn out like all the other times. Or indeed you might expect something will be terrific because it has been before and hence jump in "boots and all" into something you should not have done. Peruvian Pink Opal/ite helps you see things as they really are - giving emotional clarity, free from judgement and past experiences - free from assumptions and expectations.

It also helps in balancing giving and receiving. Often we get caught in one or the other and its not uncommon for healers to get trapped into the giving side because we feel thats what we should be doing - ignorning the receiving and depleting ourselves in the process. Peruvian Pink Opal/ite helps not only to balance that but also to get us to see that both are necessary and part of wholeness - and there is nothing to be gained in being the martyr.

This aspect is a manifestation of this stones ability to translate and balance. Whether its translating ebb into flow and visa versa or translating what you're hearing with your ears into what you know in your heart - or indeed I suppose translating languages. An awful lot of our lives get "lost in translation" - between people, from the higher energies to the lower, within ourselves between intent and action. This mineral helps with that process.

I suppose that's all summed up in saying that Peruvian Pink Opal/ite helps us to release the distortions and see things (particularly emotions and love) from a clearer, more balanced, and truer perspective. And when you see that, you can't help but smile :-)

Crystal Quartz is the ultimate "anything-stone" as it radiates all the color vibrations within the spectrum of light and thus can be utilized and programmed for any use which bring light and energy into our spiritual bodies. A "stone of the mind", quartz can be used to imprint with any energy or information and helps to focus the mind, aides in concentration and enhances mental ability.

Crystal Quartz is a power stone that harmonizes and balances. It enhances energy and thoughts, and purifies the spiritual, mental, and physical. It is also a powerfully protective stone, bringing the purified energy in. Historically this crystal has been used to counter black magic, to perform diagnostic healing, and to communicate with spirits and other worlds.

Crystal Quartz is probably the most versatile, multipurpose, powerful healing stone on the planet due to is unique helical spiral crystalline form. It is a master healer and can be used for any and all conditions. It's stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. It takes the energy to the most perfect state that is possible; going back to before the disease set in. It cleanses and enhances the organs and subtle bodies and acts as a deep soul cleanser, connecting the physical dimension with the mind.
