Let's start with the story behind these beauties. Ethiopian opals weren't really on anyone's radar until the early 1990s when something amazing happened in the Wollo Province of Ethiopia. Miners, on the hunt for something else entirely, stumbled upon these hidden treasures. Talk about a happy accident! Ethiopian opals burst onto the scene with their incredible play of colors and have been mesmerizing us ever since.
