Did you know? Peruvian opals differ from other types of opals because they don't have the organized crystalline structure that gives most opals their "fire". They sometimes have dark fern-like inclusions. Peruvian opals are often but not always blue, and they are found only in the Andes Mountains.Opals are an October birthstone -- this would make a great holiday gift for October birthdays!
