Avoid Temperature shocks:
Avoid rapid temperature change for all stones. When you clean your jewellery by soaking it in near-boiling water, never rinse the jewellery in cold running water. The result is called thermal shock, and it takes the form of cleavages or fractures. Emerald, garnet, opal, peridot, tanzanite and tourmaline are vulnerable to thermal shock. Any gem with large breaks or liquid inclusions is, too. Although the rock withstands the heat while soaking, it is sensitive to the temperature change when rinsed.
Care for your solid opal gemstone jewellery:
When wearing any type of Opal stone, please be sure to avoid bleach, chemicals, cleaners and any other non-natural substance. Cleaning your Opal Jewelry doesn’t require any special accessories or appliances. A bowl of water with mild detergent will do the trick! Clean solid opal gently, with a mild detergent in warm water and a soft toothbrush or cloth. Scrub gently and then rinse.
