Opalite | Stone for Communication

Opalite is a magnificent and pretty stone with a rainbow of colors. Opalite remains as one of the more popular manmade stones, and it is not hard to see why! 

Crystal History

Opalite has a very brief history since it is a relatively new stone. That said, there is more to the story than just making the perfect piece of opal.

Opalite crystals have a longer, though still not long, history when you consider what "opalite" originally meant. Some may want you to believe that opal has always been a term to refer to artificial opal or opalescent glass. However, this is not entirely true, as "opalite" has referred to generic and not-flashy pieces of opal for longer than the manmade kind has been around.

On the bright side, their nature does lend to them being put into many different forms. Thus, we get pretty items like opalite spheres, opalite towers, and piles of tumbled opalite stones.

Today, the term opalite now refers to the manufactured variety that we know and love. That said, opalite is still a comprehensive term and can refer to different kinds of manmade opalite. Some use it to refer to a synthetic opal, some use it to refer to a glass imitation, others use it to refer to any common pieces of opal, and others use it for almost all of the above.

Due to the nebulous terminology, it is essential to check your seller and see how they are defining "opalite." Here, at Crystal Gemstone Shop, we will always disclose whether or not a stone is manmade or not.
