Indigenous tribes in the Americas held pink opal with sacred reverence. Cherokee tribes of North America honored pink opal as one of their seven sacred gemstones. Pink opal gets its color from organic compounds included in its composition, known as quinones. These gems can appear in both translucent and opaque quality depending on the components found in it.
Pink Opal is a powerful crystal for emotional healing, emotional balance and for healing matters of the heart. If you are healing from a break up, or the loss of a loved one, holding and meditating with pink opal over your heart chakra will help to bring resolution to painful memories, filling your aura with peaceful energies.
