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.

Happy about the experience of the store, a lot of stone urge very nice
when I need a colored stone I check gem select. a trusted supplier for at least 10 years for me. many of the online sites have gone black but gemselect continues to satisfy me. oh sure there are many windowed and poorly cut stones here so paying some attention is critical. remember these are not custom cut stones but rather cut by old methods and the aim is to keep weight up at the expense of optical perfection. remember that colored stones are about color as the first consideration. I just wish gemselect offered rough for those who want to cut it.
