Large Ethopian Black Opal
Wello, Ethiopia
Vivid spectral color, predominating in strong reds and oranges are the features that make this opal desirable. A plump oval double cabochon, the stone could easily be mounted as a ring or pendant. Such opals are typically found in the interior of rhyolite nodules. Imagine the surprise and delight of the miner who discovered this colorful gem!
