Peruvian Pink Opal Gemstones

I received the most gorgeous gemstones of Pink Opal. I think these are my new favorites. All of these will be available in my gemstone store on Etsy from tomorrow. Today, you and I get to exclusively feast our eyes on these.

Peruvian Pink Opal is found in the Andes Mountains near San Patricio, Peru. The pink color is derived from trace amounts of quinones. Some stones contain fernlike dendritic inclusions that show depending on the cut of the stone.

Pink Opal is the birthstone for October, the lucky stone for Libra. Opal is a powerful healing stone and is associated with the energies of Love, Healing, Power and Good Luck.
