The 'Play of Colours' aka colour play is an optical phenomenon that describes the interaction between opals and light. When white light enters the gemstone, it bounces across the silica spheres inside and reflects a myriad of bright colours across the surface of the stone. The play of colours is not necessarily an optical illusion as much as a spectacle of light and reflection. Still, it is hard to believe your eyes when you see the vivid colour spectacle before you.
