Item #10345
$ 325
South Wello, Amhara Region, Ethiopia

I loved this opal not for cutting, but as a specimen. Inside the crackled rind is a wonderful jelly opal with ribbons of ribbons of red, blue, yellow, orange and green streaming below. It looks like some alien craft coming in for a landing! I thought about polishing the front, but I think that would ruin the natural feel of this wonderful example of the spectacular opals coming from Ethiopia right now. A super miniature, weighing 30.5 grams and measuring 3.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 cm.
