I cut these opals this summer, and I'm very pleased with the results!
These look best when set in 14k Gold. These are AAA and AA Grade Ethiopian Crystal Opal from Wello, Ehthiopa. This material was only discovered in 2008, and I've been cutting it since 2009. The best stones in this lot can sell for several hundred dollars per carat.
