A beautifully carved Opalite angel figure.
Opalite is the name given to man-made synthetic opalised glass, a clear or milky iridescent material which is said to be useful in meditation, to induce visions and to enhance psychic ability. In healing, it is said to stabilise mood swings and to purify the blood and kidneys.
The angel shape is a symbol of love and protection and is a comforting gift for anyone coping with grief or loss, or simply as a reminder that wherever you go there is always a guardian angel watching over you.
It is approximately 5cm tall (about 2in).
