October is a fun-filled month with the outset of festival season. And Opals add much more amusement to this time, being the traditional birthstone of October. The stone resembles a crystal ball that flashes diverse colors when rolled. The sight of the gem is very engaging as it reflects a different color in the morning sunlight and a very vibrant assembly of all bright hues in the dark.

Just like its unique appeal, there are some meaningful facts about the opal gemstone, which will help you get rid of the myths that the gem usually holds.

1.    Many people believe that opals are likely to crack down very often, which is essentially untrue. The impurities that lead to cracking of the crystal are carefully removed at the time of processing and polishing the stone. Thus, stable sparklers are successfully brought out in the market.

2.    It is said that this colorful variety loses its shine when exposed to sunlight and thus, the more you keep it in the dark, the longer it will shine. Not really; of course, any gemstone when kept to a heating light source will eventually damage it, but it never means that you need to keep it in the shade always.

3.    Legend remarks that ancient residents felt opal to be bad luck carriers. This indeed was the mere result of superstition and accidental happenings. The lover of opals, Queen Victoria, helped in warding off this myth from people’s minds. She and her daughters were gifted with opals and you can guess how much good luck they have brought to the royals of Britain. It is a stone of clean and pure thoughts and an emblem of bringing good fortune to the wearer.

4.    Opals do crack down when submerged in water. If this is true, I need to take out my opal jewel before I go for a bath. To your relief, this is an absolute false belief; water does not ruin or fracture your opalescent bling. However, if you have layered opals, you need to be a little careful as the water gets filled in between the layers, which gradually cause breakage and discoloring.
