Dendritic Opal Slab
Dendritic Opal’s name derives from the Greek dendritēs ‘treelike’, which then comes from dendron ‘tree’. This is in reference to the gorgeous fern-like inclusions that mimic the appearance of a tree's growth due to the presence of manganese oxides or silicates. Because it’s grounding your perspective with mental and emotional fortitude, you are better able to evaluate your choices and expectations and modulate your expectations - delays in “getting what you want” will no longer perturb you. You will be able to discern any lessons embedded within that delay and potentially plan a different way forward. It will help you forge a path to get you to your highest possible intention. Besides the lacy inclusions, Dendritic Opal features lovely milky white.
To create a body layout for stability, patience, and slowing down: place 2 Dendritic Opal Slabs over your hip area while holding either Hematite or Black Tourmaline touchstones in each palm and an Amethyst over your third eye (center of forehead). Imagine roots growing from the tip of each toe into the earth and branches and leaves multiplying and growing skywards. Repeat your affirmation: I have the patience I need to listen to my inner wisdom.
