Chocolate Opal Jewelry

A new type of Opal called Chocolate Opal was discovered in Ethiopia in the early 1990’s, named as such due to its rich chocolate brown body color. These chocolate Opals are a variety of Ethiopian fire Opal and are known for their intense internal color flashes, with red being the most common color found in these gems, often a chocolate Opal with intense red will be referred to as a chocolate cherry Opal.

Welo Opal Jewelry

Since the discovery of Ethiopian fire Opals, a new variety of Ethiopian Opal has also been discovered. These newly discovered Ethiopian Opals are called Gondar Opals or Welo Opals after the area in which they are mined. Welo Opals are extremely fine grade crystal Opals with very intense internal color play within a very transparent gem. Welo Opals can range in color from crystal clear colorless gems (with color flashes) through to orange Opals similar to Mexican fire Opals, through to black crystal Opals which would rate at N1 on the body tone scale.

Snakeskin & Honeycomb Pattern Opals

An extremely rare variety of Ethiopian Opal is a Welo Opal with a natural honeycomb or snakeskin pattern. A honeycomb Opal has a honeycomb pattern across its surface, usually this honeycomb frame will be free of color flashes and will be in one color tone, with distinct cells of color inside this honeycomb frame. Each of these color cells may be the same color, or, the Opal may have several colors each in its own cell. These honeycomb patterned Opals are true investment pieces, if you are ever lucky enough to find one for sale!
