Oregon Opal freeform beads (ETB01115)


Oregon Opal

Also know as Oregon fire opal. This kind of Opal is unlike any other opal. While most opals are renowned for the play of color and reflections from within, Oregon Fire Opal is named for its fiery colors, including yellows, oranges, and reds. It may or may not show an opalescent "play of color", but is valued mostly for its intense colors.

The best qualities of fire opal are very transparent. Most fire opal is cut in sparkling faceted stones, though you may also find it cut en-cabochon, in spheres, and in carvings.

You will receive the same quality as you see in my pictures, I always send from the same batch.
