Ethiopian Opal

A relative newcomer to the world’s opal market, this fiery gem is mined mostly in the Wollo Province of northern Ethiopia. This opal displays striking patterns of very bright play-of-color in a transparent to translucent body. Orange, yellow, brown and black body colors occur. Opal is the birthstone for October and is designated for the 14th wedding anniversary.
