Opal is a hydrated amorphous form of silica. The water content may range from 3 to 21% by weight, but is usually between 6 and 10%. Because of the amorphous character of opal, it is classed as a mineraloid, unlike crystalline forms of silica, which are classed as minerals. It is deposited at a relatively low temperature and may occur in the fissures of almost any kind of rock, being most commonly found with limonite, sandstone, rhyolite, marl, and basalt. Opal is the national gemstone of Australia.
