Palm stones (pocket stones, touch stones, worry stones) fit nicely into the palm of the hand. These tactile stones are beautiful to display and admire but are small enough to place under a pillow or tuck into a bag or pocket. They can be chosen to hold during meditation or to place on a body part for healing and massage.
Opal is silica which contains water. Because of its lack of clearly defined form, it is classified as a mineraloid. It forms under relatively low temperatures, usually in fissures of almost any type of rock. Precious opals display play-of-colour while common opal does not. Opals come in nearly any colour of the visual spectrum.
As a healing stone, opals are used to clear emotions and help balance chakras. This stone of hope is also said to bring good luck.
