Peru is known for its fine opal, particularly blue and pink opal gemstones. These beautiful pastel-colored opal gemstones do not generally exhibit the play of color that is highly-prized in precious opal, but have very attractive body colors. Chrysocolla gemstones, which are sometimes traded as "Peruvian turquoise" because of their resemblance to the blue to green gemstone, are also mined in Peru. Like turquoise and azurite, chrysocolla is a copper-bearing gemstone that is typically cut en cabochon. Due to its mix of blue and green, and unique patterns, no two chrysocolla gems are the same.

GemSelect is the best in every catagory that I have found yet. I hope to continue to place more orders to receive great gems !
Many beautiful gems on the site. Love that you are actually shipped the gem that is shown in the photos. Also cool that they give a write up of each gem detailing hardness, characteristics, and best uses for mounting. Great site! Looking forward to seeing these gems in person.
