The #1 reason we use Earth-friendly opals is so as not to deplete Nature of her resources. Hayley Starr uses her Spectrum Healing technique to program powerful intentions associated with each shape. This powerful magic can be felt by those who wear them!
Because they are rare, natural opals are extremely expensive. Earth-friendly opals are more affordable and allow more people to experience the magnificence of this stone.
These opals are cut from silica and grown in a laboratory, mimicking Nature’s process, taking over a year to grow and "come into their colors”. No two are ever the same!
Natural opals are known for their fragility and break easily under pressure or heat. This slow growth results in a similar structure and material balance as natural precious opals, but with increased durability and structural stability. Making them far less vulnerable to breakage!
