Opalized Turkish Colla Wood gem 3/24/2018 01 - 56 x 26 x 6.6 - 52 carats - This beautiful opalized fossil wood comes from Turkey and has copper secondary inclusions of chrysocolla, azurite, malachite and more. They called this material "colla" from the sky blue chrysocolla present in the early digs. Today, very little of this wood has the gorgeous light blues present in this rare, high grade piece. Cut to a large paisley drop flame shape, this cabochon has a low dome, generously girdled sides and a flat beveled back all with lovely glossy luster. A world class, unique and very rare gem.
