This 292-gram specimen of pink opal comes from the Acari copper mining area near Nazca. Pink Andean opal contains as much as 40% silicified polygorskite and can be associated with volcanism and genetically related to chemical and volcanic events. On this specimen, the pink opal inside several vugs has been coated with a microscopic druzy quartz, which gives the lining a transparent covering of sparkling points. No damage.
