The Chalama Black Opal features a variety of brilliant body colors and patterns.

The Chalama Black Opals go through rigorous testing to ensure stability which means that, with proper care, these gorgeous gems will last a lifetime.

Jewelry Television® (JTV), the world’s largest retailer of loose gemstones, announced the launch of a new variety of Ethiopian Opal - Chalama Black Opal™. The opal’s black body color is developed through a process which allows carbon to be deposited throughout the stone.

“We are really excited to offer this unique gemstone to our customers,” said Jerry Sisk, Graduate Gemologist and Jewelry Television co-founder. Ethiopian Opal has secured the country’s Welo District as one of the world’s most prolific opal sources and we are so thrilled to offer these gems to JTV customers.”

Ethiopian Opal was discovered in 2008 and has, since then, become one of the most desirable of its kind because it features such vividly brilliant colors with a great variety of striking patterns. With Chalama Black Opal™, the colors are even more visible since the background of stones is darkened through a closely monitored smoke treatment process.

Chalama Black Opal™ has undergone rigorous testing to ensure stability meaning that, with proper care, these gorgeous gems will last a lifetime,” Sisk said.

Available in cabochon and faceted gems, Chalama Black Opal™ can be purchased on with prices ranging from $59.99 to $501.99.
