About Brown Opal Stone:
Besides the gemstone varieties that show a play of color, the other kinds of common opal include the milk opal, milky bluish to greenish (which can sometimes be of gemstone quality); resin opal, which is honey-yellow with a resinous luster; wood opal, which is caused by the replacement of the organic material in wood with opal and menilite, which is brown or grey. Common opal often displays a hazy-milky-turbid sheen from within the stone.
