These opal stones are coming from Welo district of Ethiopia. Ethiopian opals originate from volcanic activity. All volcanic opal is called “hydrophane opal”, meaning “water-loving” and describes their ability to absorb water and change from opaque or semi-translucent to translucent or transparent. This ability makes volcanic opals unique with their colour flashes and it is all related to its moisture content. Please keep your Opal Jewelry away from water and moisture.
Fire opal was born in fire in the ancient volcanoes of Mexico. It forms when water seeps into silica-rich lava and fills seams and hollows. Under heat and pressure, the silica forms a solid gel that traps the remaining water within its structure. Small pebbles of fire opal are found embedded in lava flows.**
