We see you October! Coming in hot with the cool breeze of fall, and a brand new birthstone to gush over, the opal. October babies and opal lovers alike, take a moment to appreciate this stone in all of its fiery, opalescent, kaleidoscopic glory.
The opal symbolizes faithfulness, confidence, and loyalty. They are said to ward off evil, stabilize emotions, and even protect eyesight. Some say that the magical stone has the ability to release inhibitions, and amplify emotions. The lore and allure of opals is vast and varied, but we see no harm in loving them just cause they're pretty!
Opals range from 5 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale, which means they are soft as far as gemstones go, so wear with care! The safest way to clean opals is with a soft cloth and warm soapy water. Steer clear of harsh detergents, chemical cleaners, and other household products. Take care to remove your beloved opals before cleaning, bathing, or going for a swim to ensure they stand the test of time.
