Product Information

Tazma Ethiopian opal 44.95ct 29.91x21.87x14.58mm oval cabochon. The stone is semi-crysal and has flashfire play-of-color pattern. The gemstone was mined in Wollo, Ethiopia and cut in India. The gemstone comes with an Stone Group Labs Gemstone Identification and Origin Report. The stone has been appraised by Craig Lynch G.G. for $8,155.00.

This large, oval cabochon is of Ethiopian descent and holds a unique crystalline honey backdrop for the play-of-color; we named this body color Tazma ™, (Ethiopian for wild honey). This particular opal has broad flashes of bright orange on each side appearing like sheet lightning, whereas the top and length of the stone exhibits a long bolt-like lightning pattern. Orange is by far the most prominent color, but not so powerful that it masks the mesmerizing layers of blue and green beneath it. The play-of-color, coupled with the honey colored background, makes this stone a unique one-of-a kind addition to any fine opal collection. Included with this magnificent opal are a Stone Group Laboratories gemstone identification and origin report and a Craig Lynch appraisal with an estimated retail replacement value of $8,155.

As the Queen of Sheba made her famous journey to visit King Solomon, she gifted him with many objects from her homeland, including spices, incense, gold, precious jewels and quite possibly honey. Considered liquid gold at the time, honey was one of the most important commodities and remains so today. A newer discovery in 2008 in Ethiopia's Welo District introduced the world to another of the country's most treasured resources: precious, play-of-color opal.

From the Ethiopian words meaning wild honey, the indulgently rich color of Ethiopian honey is memorialized in our exclusive Tazma Ethiopian Opal™. These decadent opal gems boast all natural, unenhanced color and represent a scant one to two percent of total Ethiopian opal production. As wild as the rugged region they hail from, we invite you to discover the luxurious beauty of Tazma Ethiopian Opal™ today!
