Today, it continues to be a popular gemstone for its unique colour and properties.

 Physical and Metaphysical Properties of Blue Opal

Blue opal is a gemstone that is known for its physical and metaphysical properties. Physically, it is believed to have a calming effect on the body and mind, helping to reduce stress and anxiety. It is also said to have a soothing effect on the eyes, making it a popular choice for those who suffer from eye strain or other eye-related issues. Metaphysically, blue opal is believed to enhance communication and creativity, with writers, artists, and other creative types attracted to the stone.

How to Care for Your Blue Opal

Caring for your blue opal is important to ensure its longevity and beauty. Opal is a relatively soft gemstone, so it should be handled with care to avoid scratches and chips. Avoid exposing opal to harsh chemicals or extreme temperatures, as this can damage the stone. To clean your blue opal, use a soft cloth and mild soap and water. Avoid using ultrasonic cleaners or steam cleaners, as these can also damage the stone. With proper care, your beautiful Australian 'Queen of Gems' can be enjoyed for years to come.
