Item details

With cloud formations in delicate pink, this unusually large Pink Opal Cabochon is a beautiful example of the material coming out of Peru. Found in Peru, this form of opal has no play of color, but is translucent with a gorgeous pink color. This cab is a one-of-a-kind gemmy treasure!

Pink Opal Designer Cut Cabochon
50.5 x 23.4 x 6mm
44.60 cts.

I cut this cab by hand and it's been polished to a high sheen both front and back with slightly rounded bottom edges for easy setting.

Pink Opal is a "common opal" which is also referred to as Pink Silica, although it does technically qualify as opal. Although it's opal, it is harder than other opals and therefore used in carvings. It is generally found layered within a chalky white matrix, which may be present in some of the cut stones creating a pattern effect with the matrix and other inclusions which may be present. To me, this often has the feel of a dawn sky with ribbons of clouds. I should give a nod here to The Gem Shop in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, from which I've obtained most of the material I cut here and most of the information I have on it.
