Before cleaning Russalite gemstone jewelry primary concern should be for the gemstones hardness. Russalite is still not as robust as a Diamond, possessing a hardness of 5 to 6 on the Moh’s scale. Therefore we suggest that you perform only a gentle wipe with lukewarm water and a mild detergent.
Be careful to use a soft cloth, similar to what is used to clean the lenses of glasses. Ultrasonic cleaners, steamers, strong chemicals such as bleach should be completely avoided.
Again due to its Moh’s scale rating, some care and consideration should be taken when wearing or storing your Russalite.
Russalite jewelry should be taken off before engaging in sporting activities, exercising or performing any household chores. Store your Russalite gemstone jewelry, separately away from other jewelry, covering it in a soft chamois cloth.
