Andean Opal gets it blue-green color from the presence of chrysocolla. It often contains dark fern-like dendrite inclusions. It is considered a “common opal,” which refers not to its availability, but to its lack of fire or play-of-color that is present in “precious opal,” a quality determined by the size of silica spheres in the crystal structure. First discovered in Lima in the early 1970s.
