Opals are a broad group of stones with two shared characteristics:
- They are composed of Cristobalite, Tridymite, a combination of both, or amorphous Silica.
- They contain 3-21% water within the structure.
Gem opals (also known as precious or noble opals) usually have between 6-10% water. Additionally, they display a play of colour due to light refraction within the stone. While common opals lack the play of colour, and can be either opaque or glassy with a waxy lustre. They often fluoresce, glowing under UV light.
Hyalite Opal is an amorphous silica glass containing about 3-8% water. Typically forming as globular and botryoidal masses, Hyalite Opal is transparent with a glassy luster, sometimes with a cream to yellow hue. These opals glow dramatically under UV light, producing a bright green luminosity.
Hyalite is also known as water opal, or Muller’s glass, named after the mineralogist who discovered it. In fact, its name comes from the Greek word hyalos, which means ‘glass-like’.
