🌟Note: Care for your opals...
When storing opal gemstones for extended periods of time, place them inside a tight plastic bag with some type of moisture source, such as a damp tissue or cloth. This will prevent your precious opal from dehydration. Boulder opal is very sensitive to sudden temperature fluctuation, so try to keep boulder opal gemstones in a stable environment.
Opal gemstones and jewelry should be cleaned on a regular basis. You can use mild soap, warm water and a soft cloth to wipe them down. Since opal is quite porous, you should also avoid the use of bleach, chemicals, cosmetics or household cleaners when wearing opal jewelry.
