Mar 2015 Stone of the Month

YELLOW OPAL, a rare discovery from Napa County California

Rare Napa County Yellow Opal, our Mar 2015 Stone of the Month, it was uncovered many years ago by a bulldozer at the Manhatten gold mine in Napa County, Calif. Local collectors were called in to take it away, by the end of the next day it was gone. It’s extremely rare and seldom seen for sale, especially in designer cabochons. I heard a rumor once they found some of this in Utah, but not the same quality. I don’t know of another yellow colored stone coming from the U.S.

It’s the hardest material to come by so don’t miss out on the opportunity to buy. I’m always looking for more rough, if you have some let me know.

This material can, at times, show striations which were caused by geothermal actions many eons ago. There is also some white material inclusions which I can’t identify, I believe it just adds to the beauty of this stone. If your a collector of fluorescent material you will love this opal, it fluoresces to a brighter yellow.
