Hi!
I'm heading to Ethiopia in May.
Anyone in possession of intelligence regarding laws and regulations vis-a-vis the purchase and export of Ethiopian opals.

Best wishes,
Transnational

Be very careful when buying stones in Ethiopia. Trading and currency laws are very complicated, and can get you into difficulties easily.

Bwana,
Could you expand? What are the concrete steps for exporting the opals?

What are you referring to when discussing currency laws?
