el., i looked at JTV opal prices, they sell @ wholesale, a little more, their prices r in the $100 to $150.00/ct range for a similar stone-this is a rough guess/comparison on my part, but ur stone should b checked by a prof. for a better guess-ethiopean opal does have its issues, is not as stable as australian opal, is a little more sensitive to handling & im told can dry out at times, needing a water refresh to keep color up.-m76steve…
