WOW !! 33.5 carat Ethiopian Welo or Wello Opal with Display Container
It is commonly known as Ethiopian "Welo" or Wello opal, depending on how you spell it.
This Opal is full of FIRE and COLORS. Each turn reveals all the fiery colors.
I went and ground off all the volcanic clay which normally covers Ethiopian Opals. I then smoothed off some the crevasses and gave it a luxurious polish. This Opal comes with its own display container.
The Display Container is perfect for protecting the Opal as well as for showing it off.
This Opal weighs in at 33.5 carats.
All that needs to be done is to size this Opal to your specifications.
This Opal would be perfect for a " wire wrap " for a necklace.
Care must be taken when working with Ethiopian Opal as there are internal fractures ( see pictures ) which can cause the Opal to break apart while cutting. I would recommend having a professional or someone who is custom to working with Ethiopian Opal before cutting and shaping. Not recommend for the novas cutter.
Ethiopian Opal is called the Queen of Opal as it is most beautiful. All the Fire and Color in an Opal you are expected to see and more. Ethiopian Opal has over passed the Australian Opal which was long known as the best of Opal money could buy. Ethiopian Opal is what all the Opal Collectors are looking for. The value just keeps soaring...
This Opal was filmed dry with a Digital Camera under Halogen lighting. I do not use Photo Shop on any of my pictures. What you see is what the camera recorded.
I will always offer a Refund if you are not pleased with your purchase. Buyers will pay for all Return Postage which is NOT Refundable. I will not issue a Refund if the Opal is damaged in any way. If any lapidary work has been done to it. I will not issue a Refund if the Opal has cracked, chipped, broken apart or in pieces.

I ship everything by USPS. I ship mostly by First Class mail both in padded envelopes and small boxes. For larger items I ship by Priority Flat Rate boxes and envelopes. I try and keep my postage charges to a minimum, to save my customers on postage charges. I do combine as ofter as I can multiple items in which you have purchased. This will save you money on postage, too.
I do NOT ship out of country. My sales are for USA Buyers, only. This may change down the road, but for now to the United States only.
I also ship everything out with a Tracking Number. I have learned a valuable lesson so I always ship with tracking. Once shipped, I will email you the Tracking Number so you can track it as well.
I try and ship everything out in 2-business days. I have a regular daytime job so I can't go to the post office every day of the week. I do ship on Saturday's as well.
Most of everything I ship arrives to you in 3 to 4 business days. The post office must love me as they are very fast. Alaska and Hawaii will take a little longer to receive. I do not ship to any FPO's or APO's or any US occupied countries such as Guam, Okinawa or any war zones.
As of now I only accept payment of PayPal from all my Buyers. This may change down the road but will have to see if it warrants a change.

I will not issue a Refund if the item has been damaged in any way. If the item has had any lapidary work done on it ( such as Opal and Turquoise ) I will not issue a Refund if the gemstone has cracked while cutting or fractured as only GOD can predict if a gemstone has any flaws. I will not issue a Refund if the item has been substituted for a similar item as I can tell the difference. I will not issue a Refund if the item is broke or damaged from return shipping because of poor packaging.
