Metaphysical Guide of Girasol Opal (Milky Quartz), Physical Properties of Girasol Opal

GIRASOL OPAL, AKA GIRASOL QUARTZ CRYSTAL, or just MILKY QUARTZ

Milky Quartz is any quartz crystal or cluster that is white in color and cloudy. The cloudy white character of the crystals is what lead to the variety name, milky. The cloudiness of milky quartz comes from microscopic inclusions of fluids that have been encased in the crystal from the time the crystal first grew. From a cynical point of view the inclusions have ruined the crystal from being used for the many purposes that quartz crystals are tasked to do (e.g. gemstones or optic purposes). However, milky quartz is used in many fine ornamental carvings and the fluid inclusions can give milky quartz an attractive greasy luster unlike the other varieties of quartz.

Milky quartz is often responsible for the cloudy phantoms inside of otherwise clear rock quartz, amethyst, citrine or smoky quartz. The milky quartz may have formed at an early stage of the crystal's growth and a later stage of clear quartz growth covered the milky quartz. The effect results in seemingly a crystal within a crystal and the interior crystal may have a ghostly look, hence the name phantom. The milky quartz-amethyst phantom combination results in an ornamental stone called chevron amethyst. The bands of amethyst and milky quartz make thin well defined chevrons of purple and white that are attractive as polished stones and in ornamental carvings.
Girasol is opalized quartz found in crystallized mass form and is a cloudy blue white color.
