The internal structure of precious opal causes it to diffract light resulting in play-of-color. Depending on the conditions when it formed, opal may be transparent, translucent, or opaque, and the background color could be nearly any color of the visual spectrum. Classified as a mineraloid due to its lack of a definite chemical composition. It is thought to increase emotional activity and awaken the sexual center in the body.

Doublets are stones that are adhered with a backing which is usually glass or obsidian.  Commonly with opals, the backing is either the matrix the opal was formed in or potch (common) opal which is opaque with no play-of-color.
