Precious opal is unique among gemstones, because it exhibits a rainbow of many different colours on a background ranging from translucent white to the rare deep black. While common opal usually can be white to different shades of gray and black, it may also occur in blue and pink as seen in Peruvian opal. Common opal usually does not show any play of colour. Precious opal with play of colour is much rarer and is found in fewer places than common opal. The best known localities for precious opal have long been Australia, although, among others, Mexico, several states in the west of the USA and Slovakia have yielded precious opal over the years. Only recently a new locality for precious opal has been found in Ethiopia.
