Owyhee Blue Opal Beads
Owyhee Blue Opal can only be found in the Owyhee mountains along the Idaho and Oregon border. This stone features soft, powder blue coloration. These blue hues would be perfect for a watercolor painting of a cloudy summer sky.
Owyhee is a common opal - a more affordable alternative to opals with play-of-color. Opals are hydrated silicon dioxide.
The Sanskrit word for precious stone, upala, is the origin of the word Opal. In metaphysical beliefs, Opals promote tranquility and healing.
