This precious stone of gem quality enhances a diverse play of colors when looked at from different angles. It has a high level of brightness and exhibits multiple patterns with glossy shines of color. Chocolate opal is in fact volcanic in its origin and is found in a nodular form in volcanic ash. It's internal structure allows for it to have the ability to diffract light, therefore, depending on conditions, it can present an array of colors.
Chocolate opal should be kept in a soft pouch or presentation box, as knocks and sudden changes of temperature must be avoided.
