Please note that opals are soft delicate stones and are not recommended for every day wear. They require a little extra TLC: when cleaning, use only very mild soap and water (nothing with citrus infused acidics and NEVER in an ultrasonic cleaner), we like liquid Dove and a very soft baby tooth brush, drying thoroughly with a soft terry cloth towel, and oiling the stone occasionally to keep it moisturized with baby or olive oil. Since opals are comprised of up to 30% water they dehydrate easily and require this oiling on a regular basis. Store your opal jewelry separately and in crush proof storage containers.
We use GIA diamond and colored stone grading standards as well as subscribing to Gemval reference guide services. We are GIA (Gemological Institute of America) certified in Diamonds, Diamond Grading, Colored Stones, and Gem Identification.
