Play-of-color occurs because opal is made up of sub-microscopic spheres stacked in a grid-like pattern, like layers of ping-pong balls in a box.  This structure breaks up light into spectral colors.  The colors you see depend on the sizes of the spheres.  Those approximately 0.1 micron (one ten-millionth of a meter) in diameter produce violet.  Spheres that are about 0.2 microns in size produce red.

Australia is the classical Opal country and today is the worldwide most important supplier of Fine Opals. Almost 95 per cent of all Opals come from there.
