Opal specimen piece from Welo, Ethiopia. This raw, uncut opal weighs 2.4 grams.

Would be best used as a display piece (or possibly in a creative wire wrap), of by someone who appreciates the metaphysical powers of raw gems..

These aren't hugely valuable, but they are pretty, fascinating to look at, and are an affordable way to own a neat opal. They vary in the amount of fire they have; some have little play of color but have other features to recommend them.

These came from a two kilogram lot of "mine run" unsorted rough opal I just purchased. Many of them will end up cut and used in jewelry in my shop, but I have plenty that I'll be selling in raw form just like this.


Money from opal sales will be used to help fund my gemstone buying trip to Erongo, Namibia, Africa!
