We offer natural untreated Blue peru opal rough under PERU BLUE OPAL ROUGH in our store VOLCANIC OPALS

Peruvian opals range in color from very blue to green / blue to an aqua colored blue.

Peruvian blue opal is relatively rare and is only found in the Andes mountains near San Patricio, Peru. It is a very translucent stone with color similar to the Caribbean Sea. Depending on how the stone is cut it can be clear, scenic (showing varying degrees of color) or dendritic which has black fern like inclusions.

This is the national stone of Peru.
