Opal is a rare ore that only spawns in the first 5 layers. The most effective way to locate this rare ore is by starting at 1-3m depth. Then you mine the entire layer(s) leaving rows or strips.
Opal is the primary ingredient for the Opal Pickaxe made with 15 opal and 60 coal. There is also the placeable Teleport Pad which is made with only a single opal(and 5 iron).
Opal Pickaxe Edit
The Opal Pickaxe has the 3rd highest range, with the Moonstone pickaxe being 2nd, while the Dragonglass Pickaxe is first, and it has the 3rd lowest delay, with the Azure pickaxe being 2nd and the Moonstone Pickaxe being 1st. It also has a slow speed. The pickaxe can take a lot of time to achieve as it requires 60 Coal and 15 Opal. It's very useful for mining through stone quick, but is slowed down by ores. Because of this, many players consider it not worth going through the trouble to get. It is also out shadowed by Moonstone, which can easily acquired with a private server, or through a level 6 Marketplace.
- The opal pickaxe is no doubt the most glorious pickaxe in the game. Many accept the difficulty of obtaining the 15 opal, regardless of the indifferent stats.
- Opal is not considered a proper mineral. It is considered a rock due to it's noncrystalline arrangement of atoms making it's atomic structure rock-like.
- Opal doesn't have a specific color as it has all sorts of color like a rainbow making it easily identifiable without using any other tests.
