Opalite is an amazing material to work with, and to wear. It changes color as it catches different rays of light, making it a really magical piece of jewelry to own. Opal and Pink Tourmaline are the traditional birthstones for those born in October and the zodiac sign Libra. Opalite is a man made glass that has the color properties of opal and is often used in place of gemstone opal, which is quite expensive. It appears blue on a dark background, and orange on a white background. Opalite improves communication, encourages persistence, and aids our ability to verbalize our emotions.
About the Tree of Life
The tree of life is a mystical and magical tree that is well known in many cultures. It represents our connection to all things -- earth, air, water, fire. In Celtic culture, trees were the centre of all that occurred -- the absence of trees would be the absence of life. In Christian tradition, eating from the tree of life is said to grant immortality. In Norse mythology, the tree of life, or Yggdrasil, binds together all realms of existence. This ancient tree represents our connection to our ancestors and also of our individuality. The stages of a tree's growth through the year mirrors that of the cycle of life, similar to the eternal life/re-birth traditions in many religions.
