Only having really caught on within the last decade, Ethiopian Opal is a relatively fresh phenomenon. The current mines were discovered/re-discovered merely some 20 years ago, this particular, riveting breed of Opal has already seen its fair share of challenges throughout its short and lively history. In fact, as of late, the Ethiopian government, via the Ministry of Mines, have opted to potentially halt the exportation, of the rough opal found in Ethiopia. With the production of this splendid oddity winding down and supplies becoming more scarce by the day, the Ethiopian Opal has already begun to witness intense demands that will seemingly always outweigh the dwindling supply.

What typically sets the Opal apart from most gemstones is its color play, otherwise known as iridescence, which can appear as rapid color changes when observed through differing angles. Like most gemstones, the appearance and color schemes of Opal vary from place to place; the Ethiopian variety often exhibits a vibrant array of sweet, golden caramel hues that permeate and waft throughout the stone in a chaotic symphony of divine perfection.
