Ethiopian Opal Gems
Although Ethiopia is one of the oldest sites of human existence, Ethiopian opal is relatively new to the market, being available since the mid 1990s, and appearing on the market around 2003. Ethiopian opal base colors include white, yellow, orange, dark red, caramel and chocolate. These beautiful opals may be transparent, translucent or opaque. Ethiopian opals thus may be faceted or cut en cabochon and are available in various shapes and sizes.

More than any other gem, each opal is distinctly an individual. No other stone has as rich and varied a folklore. Opals are also the most delicate gems commonly worn. They require special care to insure their health and longevity. Opal's fire was long thought to be the result of iridescence. However, with the advent of scanning electron microscopes, we now know that it is a result of diffraction. Opal is relatively soft, with a rating of 5.5-6.5 on Mohs scale. Despite its frequent use in rings, opal is a poor choice for a ring stone; it is much better suited to earrings, pins, and pendants.

To find the Ethiopian opal gems that you seek, filter the results further by using the left-hand menu. You can buy Ethiopian opals by shape or color. By using the top menu, you can search by carat weight, size, price and other factors, to enable you to find the exact Ethiopian opal gems that you are looking for. All items are in stock and ready to be shipped.

I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.

Size and Weight

Gems are always measured in Millimeter (mm)

Dimensions are given as;
length x width x depth,
except for round stones which are;
diameter x depth

Select gems by size, not by weight!
Gem varieties vary in density, so carat weight is not a good indication of size

Note: 1ct = 0.2g
