OCTOBER IS FOR OPALS

Ahhhh...Opals! One of my favorite gemstones! Opal is the birthstone for October. Opals are known for their "fire". You can wear an opal with any piece of clothing, because there are so many colors in an opal.
 
Here are some other interesting facts about opals:
 
  • Lab-created opals are actually stronger than natural opals. They aren't "imitation". They are just made in a lab instead of nature. They have the same properties, but less water. Which makes them stronger.

  • Opals inspire originality and helps to boost creativity.

  • The energies of this stone help you express your true self.

  • Opals help ward off negativity and unwanted attention.

  • According to some, the opal can help regulate the insulin in your body & help your kidneys function.

  • They are also known for helping with PMS.

  • You should give opals to celebrate 14th anniversaries.

  • In medieval times, all blond girls wanted a necklace made of opals, as this was considered an absolute guarantee to prevent their hair from fading or darkening.

  • The opal was also thought to make a person invisible whenever he wished, and for that reason, it was called Patronus forum (patron of thieves) during the medieval era.

  • Your opal will last a long time if you take good care of it. You should treat your opal carefully to prevent any scratches or blows.

  • Don't clean them in jewelry cleaner. You can clean the band, but don't submerse them in the cleaner.

  • Because opals contain some water (as much as 20% water), they should never be stored in a bank or vault for long periods of time because of the dehumidifiers used in many vaults.

  • If opals get too dry, they tend to crack.

  • To keep your opal from drying, submerge it in water for several hours from time to time.
