Peruvian Landscape Opals - Andean Magic

Pure Nature from the Andes of Peru

 

Peruvian Landscape Opals are a fascinating opal variety from the majestic mountains of the Peruvian Andes.

They were discovered around 1983 in the copper mining district of the province Acari southeast of Lima in the department of Arequipa. Because there is no regular mining, the material is offered only very rarely.

The color of the Landscape Opals ranges between blue and green.
Scattered interlaced bands in ocher-yellow and dark green can form fascinating structures that resemble mysterious underwater landscapes.
