Opals have been considered both good luck and bad luck throughout history. When Europeans first went to the New World they found the Aztecs of South America mining the gem, and due to its rareness and beauty, they took many back to Europe to be presented to the royal courts.
Opals have very high water content and so need a little more care than other gems. Avoid exposing them to heat and strong sunlight. If an Opal loses its moisture, it can lose colour, or in exceptional circumstances, suffer from ‘crazing’, where tiny cracks appear across the surface. If you are storing an Opal for some time, it is best to put a moist cloth or cotton wool alongside it in a sealed plastic bag to keep it hydrated. Check on it every now and again and replace or dampen the cloth if it has dried out. Clean your Opals with a damp cloth and do not use an ultrasonic or steam cleaner.
