I am reasonably certain that you will not find a stone of this quality and stature at any price. This wonderful gem has a slight green-gray character, quite unlike the frequently seen white based Welo opals. This feature produces a wide variety of intense hues, many that are rare in any opal. It is a well cut, free form stone, that took an amazing polish and gleams at every angle to the existing light. Cut with a flat back surface for possible use as a pendant stone, I presume that this unique gem will likely find a place in a fine collection of superior opals. Other than the superb fire, bright from every angle, this slightly translucent Welo opal has an additional very rare feature. Thirty million years ago when the land we call Ethiopia was a volcanic, extremely active geological region, this splendid stone was being formed. The creative process which includes tremendous heat and pressure has a stage wherein the silica gel from which the stone is forming, begins to solidify. Very rarely a bit of plant or vegetative matter that is in proximity to the forming opal, may be encapsulated by the solidifying gem material. Though rare, sometimes this non-opal matter will become a fossilized stem or twig in the interior of the forming stone. The result is a visible organic wonder that amazes the mind as well as the eye! This exquisite Welo opal, in addition to its superior fire, contains a three pointed stem that is easily observable. I have marked several photos with a pink dot in the upper right hand corner, showing this ancient artifact. Please enjoy this exquisite gem in the accompanying photos.
