    Response by seller
    Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.
    It is translucent Opal that can change colour only in contact with water but that is temporary.
    That opal only breaks in case of shock.
    This is what the GIA (Gemmological Institute of America) said about Ethiopian Opal “This is opal from the Welo region of Ethiopia. It is mainly Hydrophane in that it absorbs water and can change colour. To determine if the opal is hydrophane wet your hand and place it on the top of the Opal. If it sticks to your hand it is hydrophane. Stones will change colour when wet but will return back later. Don’t dry them out under strong lights."

    Opal must be removed from extreme heat sources.
