Howardite, also known as Rattlesnake stone is rare form of opal silicated tuff, from northern Nevada. This material was completely dug out long ago, and what little there is to be had from collectors comes at a very steep premium.
Opal bestows joy in your worldly life. It draws out attention to the more colourful sides of life and awakens the desire for variety and distraction. The watery vibration of opal makes this stone a perfect tool for connecting with the Devic Realm of water. Ancient greeks believed the opal had the power of giving foresight and the light of prophecy to its owner. Opal is a delicate stone with a fine vibration. It enhances cosmic consciousness and induces psychic and mystical visions.
