What is Hyalite?

Hyalite is a mineraloid variety of Opal without any defined crystal structure. It forms from the hardening of the silica gel in cracks. The mineraloid may exhibit a play of colors based on inclusions from elements like aluminum, iron, and even uranium. 

It has a milky-white appearance and is often translucent or transparent and sometimes opaque. When split, this Opal variety has conchoidal or shell-like edges. 

This Opal is known as Water Opal, Wateropal, Hyalith, and Jalite. Water Opal is called Müller’s Glass in honor of its discoverer, Franz-Joseph Müller von Reichenstein. 

While some Hyalite varieties show green fluorescence when uranium is present, most exhibit a botryoidal or nodular appearance. 

Spiritualists say Water Opal brings joy and call it the Stone of Tranquility

Hyalite Metaphysical Properties & Benefits

Hyalite is usually transparent or clear, like glass or water. So, it opens the Crown and Soul Star Chakras, fostering focus, purification, and higher consciousness.

Jalite also shows hints of many more elements and a wide range of colors, balancing other chakras like the Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye, Earth Star, Lunar Star, Solar Star, and Stellar Gateway. 

These chakras are responsible for bringing clarity, happiness, health, wisdom, spirit communication, and higher powers to the stone. 

Did you know the Moon governs Hyalite Opal? It represents intuition, angelic contact, astral travel, and wisdom. This is also why Pisces is the best zodiac sign for Jalite, leading to creativity, kindness, confidence, and discipline. 

The elements of Water and Light are associated with Hyalite, regulating emotions, boosting protection, and leading to enlightenment. Keeping it in the North direction spreads vibrations of progress, intuition, and intelligence around your home.
