If you hold a crystal opal up to the light you will see that the light passes through the stone. In the video Justin shows us a beautiful crystal that displays a depth of colour which because of the transparency gives the gem a unique three dimensional quality.
You can see the blocks of colour and patterns in the different levels of the opal. This phenomena is rarely found in other types of opal. The most common of all the opals and the one people around the world are familiar with. White opal is found in Australia around Coober Pedy but was also found in the ancient mines of Slovakia and Hungary. It has a characteristic milky appearance and is translucent rather than transparent like crystal opal.
Light can pass though but only diffused. White opals tend to exhibit more pastel colours rather than the fully saturated ones found in crystal or black opal.Check out my other items.
