There are different kinds of opals. The most popular ones tend to be the ones that have internal "fire", or that flash of color that seems so magical. Opals are hydrated silica, so the fire is something like a rainbow caught in stone. Common opals are opals that do not have "fire", but are still hydrated silica. All opals will deal with the emotional body, and their other distinctive characteristics will add additional meaning.
Green opal is an emotional body/heart chakra worker that stabilizes and creates appropriate boundaries and buffering for those who are emotionally vulnerable, energetically sensitive, empathic, or have the type of energy field that so easily melds into others that it is difficult to discern where “self” ends and others begin. Many healers use these natural sensitivities to be of service to others, but may find it sometimes uncomfortable or even personally harmful to linger in the limitless collective energy field of the larger world. Additionally, this stone works at subconscious layers as part of how it does this work, which can be intentionally directed toward healing work that targets the subconscious, such as hypnosis, positive affirmations, and manifestation work.
Yellow opal, because of its additional connection with the solar plexus due to its color, can assist to correct imbalances between the mental and emotional body. It has been useful in mitigating the negative effects of solar flare activity that often creates a disconnect between mental and emotional processing.
