Take Good care of Your Opals

Of all the delicate gemstones, one that is most commonly worn is ‘Opal’, but it is also the stone that requires you to take special care. With some knowledge you can be sure that your opal will stay beautiful forever, under whatever conditions, over many years.

This blog is in continuation to a previously written blog which discusses very closely about ‘Yellow Opal’ . Let’s just carry on the discussion of 'how to take good care of your opals?'.

Firstly, it is very important to know as to why Opal is regarded as a delicate stone. One reason for which is that is relatively a soft gem, whose hardness varies from 5.5 to 6.5 on Mohs Hardness scale. This is why opals are easily scratched, even by the common household dust particles. Another reason for the same is that they have significant water content, probably 5 to 6%, which is why they develop cracks when kept in very low humidity environment. They are also sensitive to frequent whether changes.

Some categories of opal gemstones have some additional properties of vulnerability. For example, doublets and triplets of opals consist of a layer of precious opal which is glued to a black backing. Since these two layers are glued, prolonged exposure to water can weaken the glue that exists within them and it can also allow water to infiltrate. Opal then turns grayish or foggy in appearance.

                      Take Good care of Your Opals

Opals that have a slightly solid property should be cleaned properly with a mild detergent in luke warm water, brushing with a brush or cotton cloth.  As far as the doublets and triplets are concerned, they should also cleaned with a cloth in warm water, but never be immersed in water.

The best way to take care of an opal is to keep in mind never to wash it with ultrasonic cleaners. This is because these cleaners produce some intense vibrations that may cause cracks to develop up. If there is a need to store opals for a long period of time, it is highly recommended that you seal it in a plastic bag with a damp piece of cotton so as to prevent dehydration.

A stone that is taken care of stays for long, and once you know all the ways to rake care of it you shouldn’t ever hesitate to implement them. If you love wearing costly and beautiful gemstones, you should know how to take good care of them. And, most of all remember that if you wear an opal ring on daily basis you need to get repolished time to time.                      

When Not to Wear Gemstones

Gemstones undoubtedly look beautiful and they only add more grace to the wearer. People of all age groups have their affinity towards gemstones and they choose to wear various colored gemstones that match the color of their outfit.

But, there’s one thing that must be kept in mind before wearing gemstones and it is that there are some stones that do not suit you. Here in this blog there are some cases when you should avoid wearing gemstones.

                Case 1. ‘When an astrologer forbids you from wearing them.’ Always wear gemstones after taking an astrologers advice. This is because there are not all stones that exert their effect positively and some may affect your help and prosperity negatively. You should make sure that you take proper advice before choosing to wear a gemstone bead.

               Case 2. ‘If you do not have full confidence in a gemstone or their powers.’ Never go for a gemstone you do not have faith in. This is a point that is to be considered more from the psychological point of view rather than astrological one. Each individual has two thoughts in him – positive and negative. The outcomes of your life are completely dependent on your thoughts. If you have some positive thoughts, you will always see good outcomes and you have negative thoughts cropping up in your mind, what you will witness is failure and poor outcomes.  Such is the condition with gemstones, if you doubt that the gemstone is exerting positive powers in your life you will see positivity and with negative thoughts about it you will see negativity. Therefore, decide twice before you wear gemstones.

              Case 3. ‘If you get impure gemstones.’ Avoid wearing gemstones if what you find is an impure gemstone bead. Buy a gemstone of the correct weight and correct size as prescribed by the astrologer. Just do not go for any substance that looks like gemstone. Remember that a faulty gemstone may cause some serious harm to you. This fact particularly applies to diamond and blue sapphire; this is because these two gemstones are notorious for ruining the life of a person of kingly status.

Under What Conditions to Wear Gemstone Beads

All gemstones are unique and really beautiful, so attractive that everyone at least once in their lifetime wants something like that to wear. The rich people begin to wear them just to show their wealth or just for the sake of hobby. This is totally different condition because hobby is invaluable and there is no prohibition on the ways to pursue one's hobbies. But ordinary people cannot squander money on mindless purchase of gemstones. They have to be very selective in the choice of gemstones. They should purchase only those gemstones that are prescribed by a learned gemologist.

Under What Conditions to Wear Gemstone Beads

 Only a learned astrologer can diagnose the necessity of a particular gemstone. Usually, a person requires wearing a particular gemstone when in his horoscope, some planet is suffering from the influence of some sinister planet or some particular provision is weak in the horoscope. Astrologers also caution that no gemstone should be taken for granted and worn just for fun or as a decorative piece. Such practice could lead to disastrous consequences. This condition is similar to cautious intake of medicines: when you take medicines without any reason, it may cause serious harm to you instead of benefiting you. Gemstones are nothing but medicines prescribed to correct the adverse influences of the planets.

Don’t Just Wear Gemstones, Adopt the Right Way to Wear Them

Having a huge collection of gemstones may be your hobby or maybe you’re just trying to look to fancy wearing them. Whatever be the case with you and your gemstone, it is very important to wear gemstones in the right fashion. By fashion we do not mean the ongoing trend but also the way and the manner in which you wear the gemstone.

A word of caution for all those who are gemstone wearers: Do not just wear the gemstone but also adopt the right way to wear them.

The correct procedure for wearing a jewel is common for all of them. The stone/gem should be put on in a manner such that part of its surface touches the wearer’s skin and the other half remains open to the atmosphere. The jewel for example a gemstone bead studded ring, the lower half of which touches the finger of the wearer and the other half is put free, and it attracts the radiations from the atmosphere.

                                              Don’t Just Wear Gemstones, Adopt the Right Way to Wear Them

There are several ways in which women can put on the jewels. Some of which include: rings, studs, pendants, bracelets etc, but if you’re wearing a pendant make sure that your clothing doesn’t cover the pendant because a part of clothing covering the pendant doesn’t mitigate the good effect that the gem is expected to give.

Another most important thing that one should keep in mind is that a gem should be initially put into a three day test and only if it turns out to be positive, can you make the final decision to keep it. The fact is that the beneficial effect of the gemstone is seen within these three days.

Unfortunately, if the jewel shows adverse effects during the trial period, it should be discarded at once. This however does not mean that if the tested gemstone doesn’t suite you, non other will; it is just that, that particular piece of gemstone doesn’t suite you and therefore you can try some other piece.

Nobody wants to be accompanied by bad luck, and in order to bestow a totally good effect, you must choose a gemstone that is spotless, doesn’t have a crack or any other blemish. It should be real and natural and not cultured and artificial.
