Ethiopian Opals has often been cited as accounting for a high percentage of the world's supply of precious opal. Formed over 100 million years ago, the Opal captures the essence of natural beauty. Good Ethiopian Opals have diverse play of colors from neon reds, oranges, green, blue, white, yellow, brown and contra lush fire. There are even colors that are not present in Australian Opals like turquoise and indigos. Due to its structure, opal may contain any combination of an infinite number of patterns and may reveal itself all at once - glorious from all directions – or it may be quiet and surprising, showing its greatest brilliance only during flashes of movement. Indeed, precious opal is like no other gemstone because it changes color as the observer turns the stone. Opal is an excellent journeying stone, highly receptive, inducing a mild hypnotic state for enhancing divination and metaphysical gifts.
