use of heat paste

I hope this isn't inappropriate, but i can't find a forum on gemstones. Can I use cool paste on opals without damaging them?

Re: use of heat paste


I would not recommend using any heat around opals. They are easily damaged. I would suggest removing the opals. Perhaps you could investigate the use of a laser welder. I am not sure what heat is generated to the adjoining metal and stones.
