PINK OPAL FROM AUSTRALIA
This is a natural untreated specimen slab found in the Gascoyne region near Carnarvon in West Australia in 2011- previous to this only pink opal was from Peru. This material has various shades of pink with interesting white lines through some specimens.The pink
opal derives its color from trace amounts of included organic compounds known
as quinones. These opals range from opaque to translucent.. This may be kept as a specimen cut into stones or made into a carving.We have taken the photo with the stone wet as this is how it will look polished.
