jelly opal is considered to be a comforting stone. Wearing it, keeping near and/or meditating with it is believed to improve communication skills and bring to light solutions in the face of difficulty. Untruths-- especially of the variety that no one dared speak of before-- may be brought to light, as well, where they may then be dealt with and left behind. This is beneficial to its keeper, whose progress in life may have previously been hindered by these obstructions. Jelly opal's influence is also believed to sharpen the connection between soul group members, restore cellular memory, help to separate personal feelings from psychic impressions, strengthen boundaries, and ease us into feeling secure in our own right.
