Pink Opal Crystals
Stunning Pink Opal Crystals
Captivating pink opal crystals, beautifully polished and incredibly tactile. The colour of these medium and large sized tumbled stones is quite magnificent and the shade of pink varies slightly from one piece to the next. In some stones it's so subtle it's only just pink yet in others it's as rich as the colour of candy floss. Wisps of black, white, yellow and grey can also be seen and distinctive markings make each crystal wonderfully unique.
Pink opal and precious opal are exactly the same mineral but common opal as pink opal is correctly known, lacks any "play of colour". Both stones are made up of hardened silica gel and contain five to ten percent water in tiny pores which are so minute they cannot even be seen under a regular microscope.
The name common opal came about simply because this variety of opal can be found in many countries around the world. Although best known for being pink stones also occur in many other colours.
The vast majority of the world's opal is common opal and its primary use is for lapidary purposes. These striking crystals reflect light beautifully and will definitely add a splash of colour to any collection of polished minerals. A handful in a small bowl would make an eye-catching display and stones may also be used in conjunction with crystal healing.
Our pink opal healing crystals range in size from medium to large. When making your selection from the dropdown list should you choose to purchase 5 or 10 stones there is a possibility you may be charged slightly more for postage than we end up paying because of the difference in weight of each of the stones. Should this be the case any difference will be refunded once your order has been dispatched.
