Australians Stunned by Ethiopian Opal Find

The African gem that upset the jewelry world

Though Australia has been the dominant force in opals for more than 100 years, that country’s opal supremacy is being challenged by a relative newcomer. In 1994, Ethiopian opals were put on the map after a small discovery in that country’s Menz Gishe District in the northern part of the Shewa Province. After two additional discoveries in 2008 and 2013, Ethiopian opals have grown in esteem for their spectacular play-of-color in a wide variety of body colors and patterns. As Stauer always keeps an eye on the latest breakthroughs in gemology, we decided to craft a piece perfectly suited for this incredible gem. Introducing the Gem of Africa Necklace and Earring Set, a remarkable tribute to the world’s most popular phenomenal gem. It stars beautiful white Ethiopian opals surrounded by topaz, citrine, African amethyst, peridot, garnet and chrome diopside.
