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.
As Always never disappointed in any gemstone I purchase from this site. I have never had a problem. Thank-You Gemselect for offering such a comprehensive variety . I will continue to order from this site.
Gem select is the most trustworthy web site for gems. What I see in the picture is exactly what I get. Size is indicated by carat weight, and not the picture size, as they are trying to give an up close view of the gem I am hoping to buy. It was so easy to find the stones I was looking for at a price I could afford.
