Comment: A black opal doublet is an opal cut with a Quartz cabochon covering .This protects the opal and keeps it clean and dry. An opal is a dress stone not meant to wear 24/7 because of its softness and porosity. Washing dishes and showering,bathing with opal rings ,earrings and pendants on is detrimental for the stone, and so is too much sunlight and perspiration. A lovely stone to wear but wear it with care.Look after it and it will last more than your lifetime.
