The Welo opal was discovered in 2008 near Tegel Tena, Wollo Province in Ethiopia. The opals are found along the side of a very steep canyon. The mining conditions are very treacherous as the opals are not deep into the canyon wall and there is danger of miners not only falling off the cliff but also in the mine collapsing. Welo opal has a white or yellow base color, is translucent and includes hydrophane. Hydrophane opal has a great capacity to absorb moisture and when it does, it becomes more opaque and flashy. A dry piece of hydrophane will even momentarily stick to your tongue as it draws your saliva into its pores. As it dries out, it can take on a more dull appearance. Do not use any detergents or chemicals to clean opal and do not use an ultrasonic cleaner.
