Ethiopian Welo Black Opal Smooth Oval Nugget Gemstone Beads. (5x5.5)-(7.5x10.5) mm. You'll receive this set as shown in the pictures. Black opal is by far the most valuable and appreciated of all opal varieties, especially those from Australia's famous Lightning Ridge.
Often, black opal stones will contain aspects of common opal which remain intact throughout production. Typically, common opal is strategically left on the backside of finished black opal stones.
The common opal, referred to as'potch', actually enhances the black opal body tone and accentuates the boisterous vibrancy of other colors that black opal can radiate. It is because of black opal's ability to display such vivid and intense colors that black opal is considered to be the most valuable type of opal available today. Black opal body tones range from a dark gray to black, and the dark background acts as the base for the spectrum of colors it can display. Despite its descriptive name, black opal can, in fact, encompass various colors.
Top quality specimens can reflect the full spectrum of colors through their unique play of color quality. Please return item in its original condition.
