can anyone tell me anything about opalite?
I have a beautiful opalite angel, but I am having trouble finding anything about the stone in books or on the internet.

Help is much appreciated

LadyofDreams, most I could find at the moment is that Opalite is is an unusual type of jasper with swirling shades of purple, lavender, white and black. It also is known as Tiffany Stone. If I can find more I'll post again. Hope this helps some.

thats what I found as well, which confused me for a while because my angel is made of the same stone as these animals

the tiffany stone is pretty as well, but not what I have I can find nothing about the opalite that I have apart from pictures

always,

you are probably having trouble finding info because opalite is a term used to describe many different things. Ive seen it in reference to a gemstone that is mined, and also as a term to describe a synthetic or manufactured substance.

"Opalite has many connotations. It may refer to:
- an impure form of Opal
- Myrickite
- black glass
- a yellow-green Common Opal with black inclusions
- an imitation Opal produced from resin"

This site shows beads in the same material & has a "syn." (synthetic)designation next to it.

try a keyword search on google.com "opalite and healing"

"Opalite is a stone that reaches into our psyche and gives one calm and rest. This stone may be used to diminish and dispel sleeping disorders, but also to diminish stress and to achieve relaxation. Opalite diminishes aggression and depressions as well. Even though Opalite belongs to the Opal family, it does not display the play of light other Opals do have. "

"OPALITE Helps fight fatigue, increases pleasure in life, stimulates creativity, management and invention, and helps food disorders."

Question


Just to add one more piece of confusion to the pot, so to speak, I bought an opalite bison figurine today and the fellow I bought it from said that opalite was glass that had been treated with lasers (he did not know how, exactly) to give it an opalescent or moonstone-like look.
