Genuine Natural Rough Ethiopian Opal Earring set in 925 Sterling Silver.
Ethiopian opals are one of the most translucent ever discovered, and are appreciated for their spectacular play of colours and patterns. Ethiopian opals shine with brilliant colour flashes.
Each natural Ethiopian opal is uncut and unique. For this reason, the appearance of each gemstone varies slightly due to natural texture variations. Pairs are selected by hand for the best match. The total length (including the silver earrings) is approximately 3.1 cm long and 0.9 cm wide.
Ethiopian opals are hydrophane opals. Hydrophane comes from Greek and means water-loving and describes how these opals tend to absorb water. Water absorption can change the appearance of Ethiopian Opal by changing the stone from opaque or semi-transparent to highly translucent and almost transparent.
