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, near 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 specimen is an amazing specimen, full of color. From the clear glass-like opal materials that displays flashes of rainbows, to the mixed color brown-green rhyolite host rock, it's quite a gem. It even shows splotches of blue, aqua-blue and white. Check out the video for the amazing array of colors in this piece.
