ETHIOPIAN OPAL ROUGH PARCEL

SOURCE: ETHIOPIA, AFRICA FROM AREA KNOWN AS WELO

OPAL ROUGH SIZE AS PER IMAGE: LARGEST-18 X 15 X 9 MM

THIS IS ONLY A RECENT FIND

BEFORE THIS OPAL FILED THE OPAL FROM ETHIOPIA WAS DEEP RICH VOLCANIC BROWN OPAL,

BUT THIS AREA HAS BEEN MINED OUT.

THIS OPAL SOMETIMES DOES CHANGE CONSISTENCY WHEN LEFT IN WATER AND WILL GO TRANSLUCENT

AND IS KNOWN AS HYDRO OPAL.

ETHOPIAN OPAL IS GENERALLY NOT AS STABLE AS AUSTRALIAN OPAL BUT BEAUTIFUL FIRE COLOURS ARE

OFFERED AT AFFORDABLE PRICE AND THIS ROUGH IS GOOD TO CUT AND POLISH.
