Re: Ethiopian Opal (Welo)

Ward, Google welo opal and find the opal society. You will find everything you ever wanted to know from there forum directly from opal cutters. What your seeing is addressed in depth and what to be aware of.
Recently the US faceters guild digest had many responses to the same problems, but no one went to the opal society forum. It is an education on the "new" welo opal.
I have see a lot of it at the Franklin show, It's spectacular and may be the best opal found but you need to educate yourself before working with it.
The several grams I've purchased keeps saying "cut me!" and some day I will along with using my bead mill.
Happy Holidays to all! John from Pa
