On a recent trip to Addis Ababa, I came across four pieces of unusual opal sitting on the desk of a broker, I’ve never seen any like this before and neither had the broker. He obtained the stone from a farmer who had spotted it in a rock, knocked it out the rock and sold it to the broker, who asked him to bring more. This was a couple of months ago and the farmer has failed to find any more like it. The stone has a lot of fractures, some very old, which have filled and seem sound, others are more recent and the stone will break along them. This material is cuttable, but would yield only smallish, 1 - 3ct stones, so it seems best suited to be kept as a specimen. This opal is not in the least hydrophane and shows colour throughout, mainly red, green and gold. I have two pieces and there are another two in Addis, I believe these are the only four specimens of this type of opal that have been found. This piece is approximately 40mm x 30mm x 30mm and weighs 186ct. The stone was photographed dry although the natural gloss makes it appear wet, it actually looks like it has been varnished or polished with wax, but this is the natural state of the stone.
