Pink Opal Gems
Pink opal is a fine choice for delicate pink jewelry. Like most other varieties of opal, pink opal is also rather delicate, but in some cases, such as pink Peruvian opal, precious opal can form and mix slightly with chalcedony, which tends to give it a slightly harder composition, though not quite as durable quartz, but still much more durable than precious opal alone. Pink opal has less color play than other types of precious opal. However, like fire opal, it has exceptional body color, which makes it desirable. Top grade pink opal gems are extremely stable and are excellent for beaded jewelry and cabochon designs. They're best suited for pendants, pins or brooches, and can be worn in rings as long as some care is taken to prevent hard knocks and blows. Most pink opals today are sourced from Peru.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
