                Opal is deposited at a relatively low temperature and may occur in almost any kind of rock, being most commonly found with limonite, sandstone, rhyolite and basalt. The word opal comes from the Latin opalus, by Greek opallios.The water content is usually between three and ten percent, but can be as high as twenty percent. Opal ranges from clear through white, gray, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, magenta, rose, pink, slate, olive, brown, and black. Of these hues, the reds against black are the most rare, whereas white and greens are the most common. These colour variations are a function of growth size into the red and infrared wavelengths. Opal is Australia's national gemstone. Australia produces around 97% of the world's opal. Precious opal shows a variable interplay of internal colours and even though it is a mineraloid, it does have an internal structure. At micro scales precious opal is composed of silica spheres. These ordered silica spheres produce the internal colours and determines the quality of precious opal.
