Additional Information

The October birthstone, the opal, symbolizes faithfulness and confidence. The word comes from the Latin opalus, meaning “precious jewel,” and from the Greek word opallios, meaning “to see a change in colour”, which is connected to the way precious opal refracts light.
With opals, as with most gemstones, the final polished stones weigh only a fraction of their rough form. Opals are formed from centuries upon centuries of seasonal rains that leach microscopic silica particles from sandstone, carrying them deep into underground fissures and cavities. As the deposited materials dry, the microscopic silica spheres become compressed into a closely-packed lattice. As light travels through this micro-structure, it creates a dazzling kaleidoscope of flashing rainbow colours, called play-of-colour.
Ethiopian Opal are excellent crystals to use for psychic development. They may help you to change how you think and may assist with making decisions. They are highly protective, helping to release fear and providing a protective energetic barrier around you. They are associated with the base, heart and crown chakras.

Jewellery Care

– Keep your jewellery dry – do not expose to water (Bath, shower, sea, pool, spa etc.)
– Avoid sudden temperature changes, as this could ‘shock’ your gemstones causing cracks. Prolonged periods or cold or heat can damage gemstones.
– Store pieces separately as softer gemstones can be damaged when in contact with harder stones. Wrap in soft cloth for protection.
– Silver will oxidise if exposed to the air, so sealed bags will stop any tarnishing, but keep in mind what gemstones have been set. All organic gems, such as amber, pearls and coral, need to breathe.
– Porous stones, like turquoise and opals, need exposure to fresh air and humidity. They will deteriorate if stored in dark, dry places. Wrapping the “breathing” gems in a soft cloth is recommended.
– Avoid using harsh jewellery cleaners.
– Apply lotions or perfume and allow to dry before putting your jewellery on.
– Remember this basic rule: Jewellery should be the last thing you put on, and the first thing you take off.
