What a pleasure it was to shape and form and finally to polish this opal!  To my knowledge, and I have been cutting Ethiopian Welo opal since 2008, I can’t remember ever having seen this unknown pattern.  I gave this unusual opal a smooth and flat back surface.  I cut the top surface such that there are two distinct angled upper surfaces.  All surfaces readily took a highly gleaming polish.  The delicate pastel hues are endlessly eye catching.  Given the nearly transparent character of this gem, I took several photos with the light behind the stone.  And that is when I discovered the unique, mainly blocky patterns that sprang into prominence.  Please take a long look at the two back lit photos that display this phenomenon.  I am completely fascinated with this special stone and hope that others will be also.  If you are a collector, I believe that you’ll not find another similar stone.  This is an exquisite and eye capturing Welo opal.  I wish I could obtain others, but I suspect not.
