My Entry for "Friday Finds"
This is an Opal I cut the other day, an Ethiopian Chocolate Opal, a very rare one also.
I bought the rough piece of Opal quite a few years ago at a gem show and have just now got around to cutting it.
I hope you can see the beautiful colors in it, but it is even more beautiful in person, I did try very hard to capture all the wonderful rare colors by using my 105MM Macro lens on my Nikon camera.
Opal of this caliber is very rare in Ethiopian Chocolate Opal and the brightness is of a 10 on the Opal brightness scale....10 being the best.
The stone finished cut and polished is 3 Carats and is on my Lady Elisabeth's "Wish List" LOL.
A true "Rare Friday Find".
