Ethiopian hydrophane opal is really exciting material. Since its discovery in 2008, it has provided very stable and beautiful stones with such rich and varied color as to rival the best of Australia. Before that find, opal was a frustrating stone for me (and, I suspect, most average buyers)--for all its reputation, the only stones available at reasonable prices were milkly and almost colorless. The find in Ethiopia really blew things open, allowing inexpensive but fantastically beautiful material to become available, at least for now. (This may change in the near future, as Ethiopia is moving to ban the export of rough opal from the country). This is an especially attractive piece, with a beautiful mix of small orange, green and red flakes. It has been framed with sterling silver as a pendant. It weighs in at 5.3 carats, and measures 1/2 inches (1.27 cm) in length.
The pendant will be mailed in a priority mail flat-rate box to buyers in the US. Canadian and other international shipping is through US first class international mail.
