9.82 Carat Fine Pear Ethiopian Chocolate Opal

Item Information

Dimensions (mm) 13.5 x 17 x 7mm
Weight (carats) 9.82 carats

Wow, what a large and colorful example of a Chocolate Opal from Ethiopia.  Nearly 10 Carats!!  These rarely get this large and colorful, especially without being cracked or crazed.  It looks like there's a crack or blemish on the back of the stone in the video but it's actually just a small bit of glue from the polishing stick it was attached to while polishing.  I've since removed the glue and the stone is free of any defects or blemishes.  This is just a very fine example.

I took pictures of this Opal in high magnification and full sunlight to give you the best idea of its color play and quality. As a gemologist I can verify that the above description is accurate and that this Opal/Opals have been tested in the gem lab to verify identity and natural origin.
