Almost all Ethiopian opals are hydrophane opal. The term hydrophane comes from the Greek words meaning water-loving and describes their ability to absorb water and change from opaque or semi-translucent to translucent or transparent. Sometimes this highlights the colour play others will just become transparent or opaque, with no colour when hydrated, also to be noted the opal will have a minute change of weight when it goes through these stages.
GIA, FGA and leading Gemmology sources around the world have confirmed hydrophane opal will revert back to its original state, once dried and will be back to its normal state.
