Comment: With the size of a quail's egg, this is a most impressive specimen of Ethiopian opal. The body color reminds of milk chocolate to an surprising extent, but no chocolate, nor quail's egg, glows with ever changing intense colors, red, yellow, green, orange, some blue and purple and many cross-overs. The close-up images show visions of color that might have sprung from an artist's hand on canvas. Despite its size and color-play, this is a calm, serene gem character, less flashy and glittery than in particular the crystal opals we have encountered so far. In a pendant this gem will radiate just that: a relaxed beauty, not understated (impossible in such size and color) but visible in all light settings.
