About Chocolate Opal
The chocolate opal is an amazing gem with an interesting story. Opal gemstones were first suspected to exist in Southern Africa since 1939, when anthropologist and archeologist, Louis Leakey, initially discovered opal artifacts in a Kenyan cave during a gathering expedition. Leakey found traces of evidence that opals were once used in the production of hand tools used by Ethiopia's ancient civilization. Later, in 1995, mining engineer, Telahun Yohannes rediscovered the Yita Ridge opal field deposits, located approximately 150 miles northeast of Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa. Soon after, chocolate opals were discovered, extracted and shared with the rest of the world.
I love Gem Select!! I have ordered MANY items from them and I have been pleasantly suprised by every single one! And the shipping is WAY faster than I ever expect. Their products are both highest quality and best price. I will continue to regularly order from them...forever!
I appreciate the how GemSelect does business, and will continue to recommend it to other jewelry makers. The photographs of the stones are excellent, making selection easy. The matched spinels from my last order were extremely good and the violet sapphire from my most recent is very nice. All were shipped astoundingly quickly. The customer service is also very prompt and professional.
I have had no issues with GemSelect. My postal service 'lost' my previous shipment. I appreciated that Gem
Select worked with me (I was on an extended business trip and wouldn't have been able to accept the shipment) and refunded my purchase promptly. Thumbs up.
