Ethiopian Opal is considered by many jewellers around the world to be one of the finest quality opals. The high transparency of these opals allows you to facet, carve or cab these opals if you wish very easily! Much of the material in these opals is hydrothane; meaning it can soak up water! That means these opals do change colours in different climates. The material wont ‘dry out’ or crack due to this, however you should avoid soaking in water. Read more here about ethiopian opals
