Morado Opal | Purple Tiffany Stone Faceted Teardrop Briolette Beads (package of 7 beads)

This is Morado Opal (Mexico Purple Opal) Faceted Teardrop Briolette Beads (package of 7 beads).  The measure 8x12mm up to 10x14mm.  Each pkg. will have graduating sizes.  Top drilled from side to side.

Morado opal is a purple and white opal with minor amounts of silica from central Mexico. It is composed mainly of silica with minor amounts of fluorite. The fluorite gives some specimens a blue to violet fluorescence under a shortwave ultraviolet lamp.  The purple color in the stone is also attributed to the fluorite. I looks a lot like Tiffany Stone which is a soft to hard Opalized stone composed of predominantly Opalized fluorite (blues, purples and whites), often with many other minerals such as Agate, Dolomite, Rhodonite, Manganese oxide, Beryllium and is found as nodules in beryllium tuff at the Brush-Wellman beryllium mine at Spore Mountain, Utah.
