💎 DENDRITIC OPAL LORE:
Dendritic Opal (also commonly known as Merlinite) is a beautiful black and white ornamental gemstone containing areas of opaque white Opal, translucent grey, to colourless chalcedony, and picturesque black to brown dendritic inclusions of manganese oxides. The way these minerals crystallise can create fine fern-like branches, much like the structure of frost and snowflakes.
First discovered in the 19th century in Australia, Dendritic Opal is now found in various locations throughout the world, though Australian Dendritic Opal is still considered to be some of the best and most beautiful.
Dendritic Opal is considered to be a stone of duality; of black and white and of light and dark. It can attract powerful magic and greatly increase luck to its wearer. It is also thought to increase the connection to other worlds, to strengthen psychic abilities and aid in making contact with spiritual energies. It can also boost creativity and is believed to be a wonderful stone for all types of healing: physical, emotion and spiritual. It is also considered to be a perfect stone for change and new beginnings and can help create balance and harmony in the body and mind.
