Top best answers to the question «Why is black opal not black»

Black opals are actually not black. They have a natural backing to them called “potch” that gives them their dark body color. Against this backdrop, all the colors of the rainbow can dance in stunning patterns. Other gemstones get their color due to specific elements present at the time of formation.
