Presented here is an artfully, hand cut and crafted stone, manufactured here in the USA!
This particular specimen shows an amazing array of colors, from Blue, Red, Violet, Green, Orange and Yellow. Violet in opal is one of the RAREST colors possible.
Ethiopian Welo Opals are well known for their exceptional color play and for being a very dense opal, something jewelers prefer to work with to minimize fractures and material loss. Easily comparable, if not finer material, than that from Australia and even here in the USA.
