Hyalite Opal


Hyalite is a type of potch or common opal, meaning it does not have the color play that precious opals have. The cluster is clear and botyroidal, with a slight blue tint, growing from a yellow-brown host rock. Due to amounts of uranyl, a uranium residue, it fluoresces a bright white or green under UV light. The chemical formula for Hyalite is SiO2 · nH2O.
