Opals are porous delicate stones (a hydrophane) so things like hair spray, perfumes, oils, body oils, lotions and even long exposure to water can effect them. They should never be worn in the shower, to swim or sauna or exposed to extreme heat (like from a blow dryer which can make them more brittle)
If the stones are exposed to water, please leave in a safe place to dry without the use of additional heat (like a blow dryer) to return them to their beautiful state.
Additionally...The Romans thought Opals were the most precious and powerful of all gemstones. For ages people have been believing in the healing power of Opal. It is reported to be able to solve depressions and to help its wearer find the true and real love.
