Easy Being Green - Green Opal and Green Calcite


Details of these individual crystals on the Instagram account the weekend of December 10-12.

The green opals are the four opaque stones in the back. I hadn't worked with it before, but the beautiful green tone of these reminded me of the serpentine we all love so much. There are lots of heart chakra healing stones to choose from (ocean jasper, serpentine, malachite, green fluorite, rose quartz, etc), so how do you choose? Pick the ones that are right for your situation. For instance, green opal is said to allow us to EXPERIENCE emotions without being OVERLY emotional. Sometimes it feels like we allow our emotions to be either fully on, or we turn them off completely. There really has to be some kind of in between. Please tell me there's a middle way, amirite? Use these to help fade old wounds and grow new joy in the space left behind. Ok, also interestingly, these work on the third eye chakra which is very similar to serpentine. I'm intrigued!⁠

Ok, so what do we do with green calcite? That's the translucent green with brown streaks in the front. It also helps with emotions, but calcite is an amplifier. Use this to really release stress and resentment, allowing us to more easily move toward forgiveness of others. In my meditation practice, we do all kinds of forgiveness practice. It's so, so hard to forgive. Why not employ a helper? ⁠
