Here’s a really nice chunk of dark based hard crystal opal and clear crystal opal in a layered nodular formation from the Welo, Ethiopia locality. This type of material is somewhat rare and much less hydrophane than most Welo opal. It has layers of clear, glassy crystal and very dark grayish brown with very strong metallic colorplay throughout. Unlike most pieces of this type, this one seems to have better stability and has been dry since 2008 without any cracks or other stability problems showing. It could be cut or left as it is for a nice specimen piece, your choice. It weighs about 13.54 carats and measures about 22mm x 16mm x 10.5mm aprx. max. dim. This ExoticOpal is being offered at just $98~ We will also accept offers on our fixed priced items, just ask~
