My first Ethiopian Opal Cabs! Quite proud of how well they came out. Self cut and polished. Brilliant shine on them all. 7mm x 9mm
Good quality Ethiopian Opals like these have a variety of colors to display such as orange, red, green, pink, yellow, brown, white, and blue. Some of the colors of Ethiopian Opals are so exquisite and unique that they are not even found in Australian Opals. The striking pattern formation of Ethiopian Opals makes them look more wonderful.
Ethiopian opal is believed to be an ancient gemstone. An anthropologist in 1939 ascertained some evidence of opal in caves of Kenya. Nevertheless, the stone was re-discovered again in the mid 90’s, and mining was begun.
