Opals - Ethiopia
Ethiopia is home to the strictest gem buying rules and regulations Ron has ever experienced, so he'll have to navigate government minders and bureaucracy first if he's going to get his Welo opals. After vehicle breakdowns, police brutality and death-defying cliff descents, Ron has the chance to try to secure a huge package of rough Welo opal and a potential six-figure pay day.
