  1. Color: Yellow opal, as the name suggests, showcases hues ranging from pale yellow to deeper golden tones. The intensity of the yellow color can vary depending on the specimen.

  2. Hardness: Opal typically has a hardness of around 5.5 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale. This places it in the range of hardness similar to that of glass or a knife blade. However, opal is relatively fragile compared to other gemstones due to its amorphous structure and the presence of water.

  3. Clarity: Opal often exhibits a translucent to opaque appearance. Inclusions, cracks, and internal fractures are common in opal, which can affect its clarity and overall appearance.

  4. Luster: Yellow opal can display a vitreous (glassy) to waxy luster, depending on its quality and how it has been polished.

  5. Density: The density of opal ranges from approximately 1.98 to 2.25 g/cm³. However, this can vary depending on factors such as water content and impurities within the stone.

  6. Metaphysical Properties: Yellow opal is thought to promote emotional healing by encouraging feelings of joy, optimism, and inner peace. It may help alleviate stress, anxiety, and depression. It is believed to boost self-confidence and self-esteem, empowering individuals to express themselves more confidently and assertively.
