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 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 has been trimmed and polished and shows a ribbon of color down through the center of this specimen. Starting with white, cream and pistachio green, the ribbon of opal turns to a white, clear, orange and then finally a fine crystal blue opal color.

Pictured is the actual gemstone being offered.
