How is the formation of Opal?

 

The physical element of Natural opal is silica. It was formed in the Cretaceous period (65 - 140 million years ago) under a very special series of geological conditions. When an island sea rose, deep weathering caused the sediments to release a lot of soluble silica and formed gel. This gel went into the faults, joints, cracks and voids underground and hardened to form opal. The brilliant colors of opal results from the diffraction of white light passing through the extremely tiny silica particles
