I do this too. My dad said keep the black opal's thirst quenched. I am concerned as we haven't been home for 3 months and need to check on my opal but other things are taking precedence at the moment. Hope that watery cotton ball in the safe next to black opal is still moist...I saw that too and laughed, since I store my opals next to a cup of water and soak little cotton balls to place on top of their boxes. Occasionally I give them a good soak. Opals love water!
