About the gemstone

In the right conditions, Fossilized Lightning Ridge Nobby Formation opals are forged when silica fills the organic cavities left by sand or clay. Aside from their organic beauty and singular silhouettes, Fossilized Lightning Ridge Nobby Formation opals are beloved for their lustrous play-of-color and fire.
MOHs Hardness: 5.5-6.5
Origins: Lightning Ridge, NSW Australia
Care: All opals are fragile like glass: be extra careful to avoid abrasive surfaces, and avoid knocking your opal against hard surfaces. Extreme temperature shifts can cause cracks. To keep your opal clean, use warm water with mild soap and a soft toothbrush or cloth. Do not use a steam cleaner or ultrasonic cleaner.
Healing Properties: Precious opals that contain play-of-color are known to stimulate the emotional body and are considered an amplifier stone. 
Birthstone: October 
Anniversary: 14th
