The term "precious" opal connotes the fact that the gem displays spectral phenomena or "play-of-color." By contrast "common" opal occurs in all colors, but does not display the spectral colors that precious opal does. Still, common transparent opal can occur in non-phenomenal but beautiful shades of blue, pink, green and orange.
