History of Opals
The word “opalescence” is often misuse. Some people believe that “opalescence” and “play-of-color” are the same, which is not true. The common definition given for opalescence is “the pearly luster of common opal”. In truth, most common opal does not have a pearly luster, even when you polish it.
Hence, areas within an opal that produce a play-of-color are made up of millions of microscopic silica spheres arranged in an orderly network. These spheres are only about 1/2 micron in size, and they act as a diffraction grating. As the light passes through, it can diffract into the colors of the spectrum. The size of the spheres and their geometric packing determine the color and quality of diffracted light.
