DESCRIPTION: High quality Ethiopian Welo crystal opal cabochon.

TYPE:  Ethiopian Welo Opal(Brilliant)

COMMENT: Saturated play-of-color in a perfect honeycomb pattern. This opal also has an enclusion that might be a geologists dream come true. I have never seen organic matter like this in any opal, it looks to either be a fine leaf structure or possibly a delicate insect wing structure. Some of the original inclusion was removed through the previous polishing, what remains is very thought provoking. A collectors opal and a real stunner in pattern and play-of-color.

High quality, well cut commercial Welo opals,hand selected. Natural and untreated. I use special full spectrum lights to closely reflect full sunlight color and brightness in the pictures and video.

In my listings, “BRILLIANT” is a 5/5 brightness indoors and outside in direct sunlight. “VERY BRIGHT” is 4.5/5 indoors and 5/5 outside. “BRIGHT” is 4/5 indoors and 5/5 outside. “AVERAGE BRIGHTNESS” is 3.5 indoors and 4+ outside.
