This cabochon of Morado Opal is deep purple with patterns of creamy white. Morado Opal is found in Central Mexico. "Morado" is the Spanish word for "purple". Some common opal with a purple base color produced in Mexico has been given the name "Morado Opal". These regally colored gems are a unique member of the opal family with their all-natural colors varying from spirited deep violets to bright lavenders, many with fascinating patterns of white throughout the cabochon. Owing their unique coloring to the presence of fluorite as well as quartz, Morado Opal cabochons are also a bit more durable than most opals due to their quartz content and lower water amounts within their crystals.
