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.
Peruvian opal ranges between 5.5 and 6.5 onthe Mohs scale of hardness.
Luster: Vitreous to pearly.
Transparency: Transparent to translucent.
The Peruvian blue opal has soft relaxing energies. Legend says that it takes the tension out of communication and helps ideas flow freely. It softens the impact of stress from the outside world and can help one to release the trauma of old wounds. It facilitates facing the future with a tranquil healing nature.
I received my first opal today, and i'm happy with the service rendered, although I think i may have gotten to excited since this is my first bid...i think i paid for this small piece too much. :)1.75 CTS BRIGHT 'HONEYCOMB' WELO OPAL -ETHIOPIA [VS5592 ]
