Hydrogen bond has dual property, classical (electrostatic interaction based on Coulomb's law) and quantum (wave function based on Schrödinger equation). Since Planck's constant is one of the main criteria for decision which process is quantum, or how much is close to be quantum, we use electrical and magnetic forces of valence electrons, as point of departure, to develop method for opto-magnetic fingerprint of matter. During the study of different type of matter we observed phenomena from spectral convolution data of digital images which characterize matter from both covalent and non-covalent bonding. Since water is matter that is most abundant with hydrogen bonds, we present results of 18.2 MΩ water investigation on different temperature and under influence of constant and variable magnetic fields by opto-magnetic method. Bearing in mind that Linus Pauling, in his book Nature of the Chemical Bond (Cornel University Press, 1939), for the first time presented the systematic concept of the hydrogen bond to the molecular world and its machinery, this paper is written in honor to him and 70th anniversary of one of the most important scientific paradigm.
