 In Ethiopian Welo opal there are two quite special types of stones, known variously as an opal with a “phantom” and an opal with a “ghost”. An opal with a ghost is a finished stone that has a significant central region of color, usually golden or misty white in appearance, with the balance of the stone containing excellent fire.  An opal with a phantom is a finished stone those center is marked by a water-clear region that extends outward to the edge of the stone, the fire increasing significantly toward the outer edges of the stone.  The unusual stone offered here is a partial phantom.   As I cut this stunning stone, I discovered that one edge of it had an amount of sand and matrix that extended into the outer edge’s fire and into the water-clear area.  As a result, the finished stone, after removal of the intrusive sand, produced a half circle that has the attributes of a phantom, except that half the phantom had been removed along with the intrusive sand. Note the attached photos.  The outer perimeter of the stone contains delightful bright patches of color. Also note that the water-clear interior area also contains sprinkles of fire that are revealed in differing light conditions.  I wish that you could see this unique opal in person as the photos just can’t quite capture the overall quality and beauty inherent in this magnificent gem. If the unusual, the rare and exceptional appeal to you, please consider this amazing treasure from the earth.
