Mineralogy: Opal is not technically a mineral, as it lacks a crystalline structure. Rather, it is a hydrous amorphous silica mineraloid (a substance that resembles a mineral). Water droplets bound up in opal's structure may create iridescence when arranged such that light diffraction occurs. Iridescent opal is called 'precious opal', while non-iridescent specimens are called 'common opal'. Opal comes in almost every color imaginable; pink opal specimens generally come from either Peru or Australia.
Metaphysical Properties: Pink Opal connects with the heart chakra, opening the wearer to compassionate communication and genuine love.
