~ Opalite cab ~

Offered here is a unique cabochon of opalite, from the Brush-Wellman beryllium mine in Utah (now closed to any and all collecting). Sometimes known as bertrandite, Tiffany stone, ice cream opal, and even 'Purple Passion', but no matter what you call it, it's certainly gorgeous stuff! I'm told this rare opal gets its beautiful purple coloration from fluorite. This richly colored example has both light and dark shades of purple, with accenting streaks of mauve and palest peach to make it truly unique. It's a phenomenal cab that will contrast beautifully with either gold or silver, for an heirloom quality piece of wearable art. It has a crisp designer shape you're sure to have fun with, polished both front and back.

Weight: approximately 24 carats

Price: SOLD See current gemstones for sale
