Purple Opal, also known as Morado Opal, is a variety of Opal that was recently discovered in central Mexico in 2011. This particular type of Opal crystallizes in the form of masses and nodules without the usual “fire” one thinks when seeing Opal. The purple within this mineral is actually caused by very small Fluorite and Silica inclusions.
