Opal has a very special place reserved for it among the minerals, as it is usually not consisting of only one color, but of the combination of many, which makes it a truly magnificent spectacle. It is actually not even a mineral, only a so-called mineraloid (which refers to its weaker internal structure). It can occur nearly anywhere in the world in nearly any kind of stone, but the majority of it is mined in Australia, no wonder that it is the national gemstone of the country as well.
Opals can have many kinds of hues, literally from all corners of the color spectrum, but the two rarest colors to be found are black and red, so these are the ones that can make an opal more valuable.
