Rough Ethiopian Opal Specimens
Single small pieces of rough Ethiopian Opal, some of which are still in their original stone matrix. These come from the well known opal fields in and around the Welo province of Ethiopia.
All of these pieces will have at least some play of colour, and have been pictured dry in low light to show off some of the flash. When polished or wet, they will show up their flash much better.
These are not lapidary grade, really; some may be okay for cutting very small stones, but I wouldn’t want to bet on it. The pieces measure between 5 and 15MM approximately. They will have some cracks and matrix running through the stone.
