Hi Crazy#69  :D

You can check one place that is found before the main post office and infront of EBC(ethiopian TV Station) building.Hope u can start from there and find more info.

Good luck :cheers:

Daniel thank you that place as you told me infront of ETV buulding have posibilty to find rough stones. Or only cut stones.


be very carefull with this, as far as I know do you need a licience to join this Business, unless you are a Tourist and just buy for your own demand (also with paper).
The Control on the Airport is strickt and they find all which is a Kind of Mineral. I know due that I send out soil test regular.

some mining is organized by small cooperatives, that might be a source and they should have papers. Do not buy any Stones on the road and with out checking out the sellers legal documents!

No documents (original) no Business!!!!!!


Ethiopian Opels are mostly for export. They are mined in Konjo and Wilo. Contact them at ethiopianopels[at]

Hey there;

You could get any type and form of opel and other gemstones with me if you had the necessary preparation and legal personality /liscence to bring the stones out. Send me your number and will call you when you come to Ethiopia/Addis Ababa.
