During the last 50 years, Native jewelers in the Southwest—Navajos in particular—have created a contemporary aesthetic that draws on traditional materials and reflects the persistence of cultural values such as beauty, centering, and balance.\nOpals are a beautiful 'rainbow stone', formed from the skeletons of tiny shells and animals, very porous and at least 30% water. A gem of psychic awareness and of the moon and water it can increase everything we feel as well as helping the assimilation of emotion. Reputed to lose its lustre if touched by an unfaithful lover. They were traditionally believed to help women giving birth to let go and relax. Useful to help control temper and calm the nerves. Good for the lungs. A strong healing stone, said to enhance intuition, help with eyesight and bring relaxation to the point of total peace. This stone can be used to put the wearer in touch with his or her higher self.

Used by Aborigines and Native Americans to invoke visions. Can allow for the release of inhibitions and be used to strengthen the memory and instill faithfulness and loyalty with respect to love, personal affiliations and business relationships.\n
