Opal, from the Greek, "Opallos" meaning to see a change of color, is a formation of non-crystalline silica gel.
Precious Opal consists of millions of silica spheres of similar size arranged in regular layers. This structure results in the diffraction of light, the wavelengths of white light being separated into the spectral colors.
