7] Most of the water is physically held in inclusions or microscopic pores within the opal, that is, in spaces between the microspheres. Water held in this manner can escape through complex systems of microscopic fissures or cracks, induced by temperatures even below 100~ Some water is held within the opal via chemical bonding ("adsorption") to the surfaces of the silica microspheres and is retained to temperatures approaching 1000~ [7] Furthermore, since the microspheres themselves are composed of much smaller silica particles, water is additionally coated on the surfaces of these minute particles.
