Flamingo Opal - Rose Dreams

A Pink-White Gem from the Heart of Idaho


Flamingo Opal is a fascinating stone with lovely colour zoning. Varying shades of pink alternate with opal layers of beige and cream-white. Small traces of organic compounds embedded in Palygorskite (magnesium aluminum silicate) create subtle nuances in the various pink shades, from a pale pink angelskin shade to intense dark pink.

This enchanting gemstone goes with every fashion trend because of its fairly neutral colouring, and can be worn daily.

Lovely pink-white Flamingo Opals are thought to support our well-being. Our hearts feel spontaneously attracted to them. They encourage us to live together in harmony, with compassion, warmth, and happiness.
