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.

finally bought the last rock to complete my ring idea; needed another white one after giving the big diamond to my daughter. a diamond that size is out of my retired-school-teacher budget, so i bought a white zircon. went back to the same place that i got my loose sapphire-- great selection, good prices, good delivery!

I'm always real pleased with this website, I don't think there is much you could do to make it any better. I wish the shipping charges were lower, but it is understandable.

This is a site that sources valuable and genuine stones forms around the world, with and honest and descriptive sections, as well as specs, and the option to have the gemstone collection one might purchased—certified! Price ranges vary, but are always affordable and always worth it, whether it’s a gift, or for a personal business.

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
