This opal is mostly a bluish boulder opal but I really like this opal mostly because it has one pinpoint flash of orange that is really intense.

For those of you who know me well, it will come as no surprise that I help my opal supplier run his booth for some of the winter trade shows. I love this winter gig for many reasons. One of them is that I get 1 st pick of all the new opals! Another is because I get to smooze with all of the designers who do wholesale only shows-a whole group of great people I never see in my show circles. And the best reason is because I always get to spend my birthday with my best friend Lisa Joy Sachs who lives near the trade shows!
I acquired this beautiful natural blue Peruvian opal on my last trip to the Tucson gem shows. Northern California gemstone artist, miner and sculptor, Richard M. Schull, cut this stone.

It is strung to 16.5 inches long.
