All Different Types of Opal | Unboxed + Hands On
In this gemstone unboxing episode, our team of gemstone experts show you opal and its different types, colors and shapes as October's birthstone. Opal is formed by silica spheres, and how they are arranged is responsible for the type of color they have. Opal can also display play of color, a phenomenon in which light is split into its constituent colors of the rainbow; so, if you move light across opal, you'll see green flashes, blue flashes, and some red or purple flashes of color appear across it. When it comes to the value of opal, it largely stems from its visual pattern and its play of color. Opal's pattern is more treasured when it's uniform in design and has higher vividness of the color.
