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 have purchased from GemSelect before. I was impressed with the obvious care that was taken in the packaging and shipment of my gem. The gem itself was absolutely stunning...which is why I highly recommend GemSelect!
I am very happy with my purchase from GemSelect. The process was quick and easy. The price and selection of gems is astounding and I found exactly what I was looking for in as good if not better quality than other dealers were offering for the same gem but for a fraction of the cost. My girlfriend is going to love her engagement ring. Also, the amount of information on the exact details and specs of the gems was much more than other dealer and they had REAL photos of the ACTUAL gem. That was something I didn't find at any other site.
