Opal is an amorphous form of silica related to quartz, a mineraloid form, not a mineral. 3% to 21% of the total weight is water, but the content is usually between 6% to 10%. Opal is the national gemstone of Australia, which produces 97% of the world's supply. Opal's internal structure makes it diffract light; depending on the conditions in which it formed it can take on many colours. It ranges from clear through white, gray, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, pink, magenta, rose, slate, olive, brown, and black. Peruvian opal is a semi-opaque to opaque, mostly blue-green stone found in Peru which is often cut to include the matrix in the more opaque stones. It does not display pleochroism.

Opals are also found in the United States, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Turkey, Indonesia, Brazil, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Ethiopia.

The Opal helps you find the right path in life och gives you power to innovate. It stands for love, happiness, health and money.
