Each one of our Ethiopian opal rough specimens is 100% natural untreated opal just the way it was found in the earth! Here at mineralminers.com, we don't have any created opals! We have genuine Ethiopian opal gem grade rough and mineral specimens available for use as fine mineral specimens just as they are or to be set in jewelry "as is", or they can be handcrafted into carvings and cabochon gems of natural solid opal with beautiful color play.
The recently discovered opal find near Delanta in the Welo Province of Ethiopia is now producing very stable jewelry grade opal with bright plays of green, red, blue, and orange colors in beautiful harlequin patterns. This new Ethiopian opal is completely natural and has proven to be just as hard and stable as fine Australian opal and Brazilian opal. The body color of this new Ethiopian opal ranges from golden-brown to white to colorless to blue, and the transparency varies from translucent to crystal clear. The mostly transparent Ethiopian opals with color play are sometimes called jelly opal gemstones and the semi-transparent opals with fine color play are often called crystal opal gemstones. Both have beautiful flashes of color inside. Some of these opals tend to absorb water and change their transparency and colors if placed in water, and then they recover their original play of color and transparency after being removed from the water and drying out. This type of natural opal is known as hydrophane opal. We have these completely natural Ethiopian opals set into fine jelly opal necklaces, Jelly & crystal opal earrings, and wonderful crystal opal necklaces!
In addition to our beautiful Ethiopian opal mineral specimens and gem grade rough, we also have a large selection of genuine Ethiopian opal jewelry designs in solid 14k gold.
