« back to Cornish Crystals & Minerals
One of the joys of being offered a local collection is that it's usually from someone who was an active rock hound back in the days when you could get access to the clay pits, quarries and mines of Cornwall. All before the time when health and safety, and new mining methods put paid to that.
We don't get to see new pieces like this Cornish Opal, with it's beautifully fluid formation, and pearly hue.
The watery nature of opal plays with the full spectrum of light, giving them a magical property. Perhaps this is why myths regarding luck have developed about them. They have a stable energy that provides emotional support, balancing moods - a true Libran stone!
