ITEM DESCRIPTION
Featured is a genuine Oregon Butte Opal. Oregon Butte opal is an extremely unique variety of opal found in a remote site called Opal Butte, Oregon, in Morrow 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 palm-size specimen shows predominantly clear, red orange pure crystal opal to the right of the tan and green host rock.

Pictured is the actual gemstone being offered.
