Get Stoned: O P A L

August 28, 2017

come on baby… let’s get high.

O P A L is hydrated silicon dioxide-but let’s skip the science and get to the point, why O P A L is so “precious.” While “Precious” is literally a type of O P A L, among the other categories including “Common” and “Fire,” the stone itself is believed to have many abilities beyond its striking exterior.

If you weren’t born during Pumpkin Spice Latte season, a.k.a. October, then you aren’t fortunate enough to have O P A L as your birthstone. But this doesn’t mean you can’t still sport the stone and subject yourself to its powers, which range from physical and emotional healing to inspiration of love, innocence, luck, and happiness.

O P A L, or the “Eye Stone,” was named for its aesthetic appeal, and in the ancient days it was believed to strengthen sight and cure eye diseases. In the same way that prisms refract light and reveal rainbows, O P A L attracts a full spectrum of Light energy to the body. It was also believed to bring good luck because it takes on the powers of all of the gemstones whose colors can be seen within it.

In addition to helping eyesight, O P A L is said to have beauty benefits for skin, hair, and nails. Is it “look good, feel good” or “feel good, look good?” Either way, the two go hand-in-hand and on top of O P A L‘s physical healing powers, the stone can also provide emotional healing.

Dive deep into yourself and dig up your own dirt, or O P A L will do it for you. Its high internal energy brings thoughts and emotions to the surface for analyzation and even allows for insight into past emotional states and lives. Looking for a cleanse deeper than juice? O P A L eases the process of internal cleansing by encouraging and enabling people to own their feelings, stop negative behaviors, let go of grudges, and overcome fears. In helping with this process, Opal became known as the “stone of happy dreams and changes.”

Sh*t outta luck? It’s good fortune to be gifted O P A L. According to tradition, O P A L is the 14th wedding anniversary gift, but nowadays it’s a gift for any occasion-who wouldn’t be stoked on a stack of O P A L rings? Stop by the shoppe, stack ‘em up and see the powers of O P A L for yourself! If nothing else, it’s easy on the eyes-pun fully intended.

Rain Drop, NEW Shoppe

Aug. 2, SAN DIEGO – A wild shoppe emerges from the depths of Instagram to the sunny streets of San Diego, pronouncing itself the first Child of Wild storefront. The cream colored, cactus-filled concept store boasts a collection of Child of Wild’s most popular online pieces I.R.L.

The shoppe is an eclectic embodiment of the essence of Child of Wild, decked out in ivory hues with pieces ranging from crystal-embellished cow skulls to Mongolian fur throws, and of course eye-catching jewelry from all over the world.

Five years after its establishment online, Child of Wild finally, and quite literally, opens its doors to the public. Owner Eileen Lofgren moved to Los Angeles to start her company and embark on the archetypal journey of L.A., which many people fall victim to, arriving high in hopes and leaving low in funds. After hours of traffic down the coast, Lofgren unpacked and moved herself and Child of Wild into her parents’ basement in San Diego to give it a fighting chance. Lofgren saw the potential in her newborn child, but never could have expected to reach 500,000 followers so soon.

This week, Child of Wilde Shoppe quietly opened its doors with a cactus outside and lit up its hot pink cow skull “open” sign. An Instagram post will announce the grand opening, which eager fans from all over Southern California have been anticipating.
