What is Peruvian Opal?

Some of the world's most beautiful common opal is produced in Peru. Common opal lacks a "play-of-color" but it can be cut into colorful cabochons. Peruvian opal provides an excellent example.

The blue and pink stones in the photographs on this page were cut from rough material mined in Peru. The blue stone is a teardrop-shaped cabochon that is about 13 millimeters by 8 millimeters and weighs 2.3 carats. The pink beads show a range of color and are about 4 millimeters in diameter.
