Peruvian Opal, also called Blue Opal or Andean Opal is quite rare and only found in the Andes mountains near San Patricio, Peru. A translucent stone, with a blue-green color that resembles the Caribbean Sea. The color is caused by fine traces of copper, that are trapped within the crystal structure. Peruvian Opals show no pleochroism (play of color) that is typical for other opals.

Wonderful as a unique gift for a special occasion like a wedding, your 14th wedding anniversary, birthday or just to keep it for yourself. Opal is an October birthstone. Wear it alone or layered with other necklaces.
