NOTES - These 5/5 Welo gems are often being sold as Crystal, Lightning Ridge, Australian gems they are such high quality. A 5/5 grading is perfect on the Ethiopian Color and brightness scales. These opals are being over mined and like Australian opals will eventually mine out. The quality has noticeably been diminishing in the last few years. Prices will soar when the mines give out. Australian opals have spares in price surpassing most precious gems in pricing. A great investment gem.
