♦ GEMSTONE STORY
Welo Opal is mined in the Welo Amhara Regional State Highland plateau. These mountains are very steep and high, up to 3,200 meters above the sea level, and make opal mining difficult and dangerous
This opal fields were only discovered in 2008 and has gained good reputation for quality Ethiopian gem crystal and hydrophane Opal.
Welo opal can change colour to yellow or clear white if left in water so humid or certain weather conditions can affect the color of this opal.
If you work outside or gardening you will notice a color change that people in cities would not see.
It’s not a negative aspect but the unique property of hydrophane opal that is enjoyed by so many opal lovers.
Ethiopian opal is one of today’s market’s most varied and dramatic opal kinds. Ethiopian opal is also graded on shape and luminosity, but the stone’s body tone does not play a major part in determining the ultimate quality.
