The pink opal is a stone without equal.
It is known as the "stone of spiritual awakening" and its varieties of colors range from pale pink to lavender, through cream tones with lots of white veins. It owes its coloration to the presence of manganese in its composition and does not present iridescence particles on the surface. It is considered a stone of relaxation and internal renewal that also favors the affairs of the heart. The natural pink opal is a mixture of opal and chalcedony that until recently could only be found in deposits of the Andean mountain range, in Peru.
Gross pink opal precisely because of its geographical location, it is also known as the pink opal of the Andes. Although, the truth is that recently they have also discovered deposits in Australia of pink opal, but without reaching the same quality as the Peruvian specimens. The pink opal does not have any play of color, but like its blue opal, or the precious fire opal, it has an exceptional color that makes it a very desirable stone, even if it is a common opal. Quality specimens are highly prized as an ecological alternative to pink pearls and angel skin coral. It is a stone that due to its beauty and its attractive pink color, has managed to become a very popular gem in the market for precious and semi-precious stones.
