Birthstone for Virgo and Aries
Aligns with the Heart, Upper Heart and Throat Chakras; affects the Third Eye Chakra

Properties: In South America blue opal is considered a magical love stone. It is warm and happy, and connects primarily with the Heart and Upper Heart Chakras, more than with the Throat. It helps us to become open and enthusiastic, liberates feelings, and has a mood-lifting effect. It strengthens the immune system as well as having a positive effect on the emotions, and aids inner reflection. It works slowly, and is best used in direct contact with the body.
