Description:

The USA isn't the biggest producer of fine gems compared to other places around the world, but the Oregon Opal, and Sunstone are two highly notable exceptions. This Oregon Opal came from Opal Butte, which actually is famous for producing the finest Opals ever found in Oregon or the USA. They are also as good or better than Fire Opals anywhere on the planet. The problem is that this incredible mine closed about 20 years ago and the material was mined out, so these stones have become quite rare, and as of today no location in Oregon has been able to duplicate their quality. This particular Oval is so clean that you can read a newspaper through it, so the word opaque virtually doesn't apply. This stone is a calibrated 16 X 12 mm so it will fit into any pre-made Gold or Silver setting. That saves money on custom work, and our price for the stone is excellent. It is really beautiful.

**Every Sunstone on our Website is a Natural Copper Bearing gem from Eastern Oregon. All of our Opals are also from Oregon, and every item on our Website whether it is a gem or a recently added Agate they are all 100% Natural. We have no heat treated or otherwise enhanced products, and if necessary we are willing to provide a "Legally Binding" certificate of authenticity. A Pay-Pal button for easy payment is below every item, but we will accept US Postal Money orders and Checks. If you have questions on this please E-Mail us at sales@OregonSunstoneGem.com
