October's birthstone, the opal, symbolizes faithfulness and confidence. The word comes from the Latin opalus, meaning “precious jewel,” and from the Greek word opallios, meaning “to see a change in color.”
With Ethopian/Welo Opals you want to avoid submerging these stones in liquids whether its water, oils or lotions. Please remove opal jewelry before washing hands, putting on lotion, swimming, showering or similar activities. I say this for all my jewelry because really, it's the best thing to do to care for all kinds of jewels, but it's especially important for this absorbent stone (or ones that are transparent).
Opals in general are one of the most delicate of stones. It's best to remove opal jewelry before any heavy activities like gardening, exercise or housekeeping.
Keeping your opals clean is an unsaid rule of the “opal care” do’s and don’ts. Make it a point to clean your Ethiopian Opal gemstone jewelry with a soft and dry microfiber cloth after every use to eliminate fingerprints, dust, and dirt. This single habit goes a long way in ensuring your opal jewelry lasts longer.
