This is a beautiful Peruvian blue opal and 18k solid gold pendant. This material was mined more than 30 years ago from a small short-lived find in the Andean foothills. Most of the material that came out of these mines is opaque and at best translucent with inclusions of other minerals making it unusable for high quality jewelry. This stone is higher quality with really nice light blue color.
The body of the pendant has a ribbed design which encircles the gemstone. The bale is attached by a small horseshoe shaped piece. It is a small-sized pendant that is just over 5/16” wide and close to 3/4” tall (including the attachment bale).
