Description: Ethiopian Opal. An Ethiopian opal is a type of opal gemstone mined in Ethiopia. Opals are known for their unique play-of-color, which is the phenomenon where they exhibit flashes of various colors when they catch the light. Ethiopian opals are particularly prized for their vibrant and diverse color displays, ranging from fiery reds, oranges, and yellows to blues, greens, and purples. These opals are typically formed in volcanic rock, sometimes referred to as “Welo opals” after the Welo Province in Ethiopia where they are commonly found.
