Peruvian Blue Dendritic Cuprian Opal

Description

Peruvian Blue Opals were originally found around 1983 in the copper mining exploration area which is located in southern of Lima Acari in the Arequipa Division.  The color of the Blue Opals  can range from intense neon blue to mint green with all shades in between and is sometimes also accompanied by brown and black-brown dendritic moss like inclusions. Natural Peruvian Blue Opal has become  quite rare and it is honored as the national stone of Peru.

This unusual blue "uncommon opal" was found in Ica, Peru. Colored by copper, this translucent opal is veiled with dendrites and has quite a unique character. Slight green fluorescence indicates trace amounts of uranium in this specimen.  This opal would make a stunning pendant, or, like myself, a perfect addition to a collection.
