About Ethopian Opal:
Mohs scale hardness: 3.5 – 4
Precious opal mined in Ethiopia began entering the gem and jewelry market in 1994. The most important opal discovery in Ethiopia to date was made in 2008 near the town of Wegel Tena in the Wollo Province in the northern part of the country. This opal can have vivid play-of-color flashing from a body color of clear, white, yellow, orange, or brown. This material quickly became known in the trade as Welo Opal
Opal is believed to intensify emotions and releases inhibitions. It stimulates originality and creativity.
Opal is the birthstone for the month of October. It is also the stone given to celebrate the 14th year of marriage.
Like all organic gemstones, caring for Opals requires extra attention. Opals can be cleaned with warm water and a soft cloth. Mild soap or detergent can be used if needed, but avoid harsh chemicals, including bleach, perfume or hairspray. Excessive heat and acid can weaken stability and iridescence.
