women's green opal akasha mala bracelet, made with a grade a+ green opal, faceted smoky quartz, and antique brass buddha guru bead. akasha is my favorite sanskrit term, used to designate the "inner" space of the heart or the space of consciousness. in fact, it was this term that inspired the name 5th element yoga. it represents the fifth essential element of space or sky, which allows the creation of all of the other elements.
opal is a stone of many varieties that share common energies. it is a stone of hope, inner peace, love, and inspiration. it inspires and renews the heart chakra, unconditional love, imagination, and brings strong creativity to the spirit. it has been used for self-esteem, self-worth, and releasing harmful inhibitions, as well as protection, clarity, and to calm turbulent emotions. it is known as a very spiritual stone that brings courage, happy dreams, fidelity, and eases the process of change and letting go. it has been used to support the heart and crown chakras, and is helpful for a variety of chakras based on its color.
smoky quartz is a grounding stone that has been used most often to overcome sadness, nightmares and stress. it is said to stimulate the natural crystal in body tissues to resonate at the highest frequency. the clearest smoky quartz are the most intense, are powerfully opening to the crown chakra, and induce alpha/deep meditation. its benefits also include channeling higher guidance, deep relaxation, and helping with unconditional love.
