CARING FOR YOUR  OPALS
OPAL IS ONE OF THE MOST SPECTACULAR GEMSTONES. THE PLAY OF COLOUR YOU SEE IN OPAL IS DUE TO MILLIONS OF TINY SILICA SPHERES OF DIFFERENT SIZES. THESE SPHERES REFRACT LIGHT AND CAUSE THE BEAUTIFUL SPECTRAL COLOURS YOU SEE.

THE SPHERES HAVE TO BE JUST THE RIGHT SIZE AND OF A UNIFORM NATURE TO CREATE ENOUGH COLOUR FOR OUR EYES TO SEE. MORE THAN ANY OTHER GEMSTONE, EACH OPAL IS DISTINCTLY INDIVIDUAL.
OPALS ARE ALSO THE MOST DELICATE GEMS COMMONLY WORN AND REQUIRE SPECIAL CARE. OPALS ARE DELICATE BUT WELL WORTH THE EXTRA CARE. WITH A LITTLE KNOWLEDGE AND SOME COMMON SENSE, YOU CAN KEEP YOUR OPAL IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION FOR MANY YEARS TO COME.
OPAL IS A SOFT STONE, APPROXIMATELY THE SAME HARDNESS AS GLASS (AROUND 6.5 ON MOH’S HARDNESS SCALE), SO IT IS IMPORTANT TO TREAT YOUR OPAL CAREFULLY IN ORDER TO AVOID DAMAGING IT.
ALWAYS REMOVE YOUR OPAL JEWELLERY BEFORE SHOWERING. AND IF THERE IS A CHANCE IT WILL BE SCRATCHED (I.E. WORKING
IN THE GARDEN, MOVING FURNITURE, ETC.) OPALS ARE SENSITIVE TO TEMPERATURE CHANGE, AS A RESULT, OPAL MAY CRACK IF SUBJECTED TO VERY DRY CONDITIONS OR RAPID CHANGES IN TEMPERATURE. TRY TO AVOID VERY HIGH TEMPERATURES OR LOW HUMIDITY EXTREMES, SUCH AS BOILING WATER OR ZERO HUMIDITY
NEVER ALLOW ANYONE TO CLEAN YOUR OPAL IN AN ULTRASONIC CLEANER, AS THE INTENSE VIBRATIONS MAY CAUSE CRACKING
