Very fine and relatively large opal nodule from Ethiopia. This Opal not only shows color near the surface, it has tremendous depth of color extending through the interior dominated by a saturated, gemmy, deep, fiery red-amber with impressive highlights of green, yellow and orange. The gem area on the front of this Opal measures an amazing one and three-quarters by one and a half inches across; the depth of the color is almost unfathomable! These aesthetic Opals are from the earlier years of Ethiopian Opal exports (about 2010), as we have not seen so many recently. PHOTOS JUST CANNOT CAPTURE the full beauty and depth of this rich specimen. It is way beyond the typical nodule. Ex. Herb Obodda collection with label.
