Item Description
Featured is a genuine Oregon Butte Opal pendant necklace. Oregon Butte opal is an extremely rare and unique variety of opal found in a remote site called Opal Butte, Oregon, near Marrow County. It was originally discovered by Tiffany & Co. in late 1930's and early 1940's, but was later mined out fully in the 1990's. Most of the gem quality material is now gone. The butte area is privately owned and not open to the public. Oregon Opal is know as a "fire opal" with color shades of red, orange, yellow, blue and clear and the gem material is translucent.

This particular specimen pendant shows a split of deep pure translucent crystal opal, with hints of blue, cream yellow and green. The other half is the natural brown/green host rock, called rhyolite. This specimen comes with the 18" (adjustable) cord as shown.
