7.8ct Ethiopian Opal Specimen with Interesting Pattern

Welo Ethiopian hydrophane opal mineral specimen with an amazing play of color. Watch Video to see the play of color and full view of this opal.

We recommend that this opal material NOT be submerged in water (unless it is being cut, water will keep it cool), and it should never have any oils applied to it. Also, due to the hydrophane nature of this opal, the weight can vary slightly with humidity. We consider this to be a Thumbnail (TN) sized specimen.
