Our welo opal pendant necklace is made with a 7mm round faceted opal gemstone that dangles from a sterling silver cable chain. Opals are natural gemstones from the Wollo province of Ethiopia with plenty of "play-of-color" unique to each stone. Perfect for an October birthstone gift.

 

About Ethiopian Opal:

Ethiopian opal was discovered by farmers in 2008 in the small village of Wegel Tena in the Wollo Province of Ethiopia. The opal is found in horizontal layers of volcanic rock along cliffs. About 200 local miners work with homemade tools, picks, hammers, and shovels to extract the opal from the rock. Mining the opal is very difficult because of the rough terrain. The cliffs in Wegel Tena are becoming the leading supplier of high quality opal gemstones.

Opals have “play of color” which is created by the light reflecting off of silica spheres in the stone. They can display a variety of colors when turning the stone at different angles. Each opal is unique in the colors they display, vibrancy, and hues of color. Opals also differ in the patterns of color dispersion across the stone such as pinpoint (or pinfire), mosaic, flame, and peacock patterns.
