Not all Opals are opaque and there are other body colours available too. Fire Opal is an amazing orange, Yellow Opals can be found in Tanzania and Mali Opals are a delicate green. Opal is considered the birthstone for people born in October.
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.
White Gold is an alloy of Gold and at least one white metal (usually nickel, Silver, or Palladium). White gold is usually enhanced with Rhodium plating. To preserve this plating, avoid swimming in your jewellery as chlorine, in particular, can cause faster degradation. Chlorine is present in small amounts in tap water, so it is best to avoid getting your jewellery wet where possible. It is a simple matter to have items re-plated.
