A Crack in Everything...⚡️

BOULDER OPAL

~ s t o n e    s t o r y ~

"Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in."
~ Leonard Cohen

Paired with kyanite and tanzanite beads
this sweet medium-sized, fan-shaped boulder opal
speaks to me of the perfection of our imperfection.
transformation and transmutation.

How our humanness allows us to know compassion
Our faults require love to heal.
Our flaws add color.
And we can polish it all into something beautiful.
