Opal is supposedly “the new crack,” as it is cheaper to distribute and more widely available. According to the woman in Opalo.mp3, this drug’s main distribution source is America itself.

More information about opal can be found in a message on Consolidated Mail Systems[1] from Angry Sniper to No One Important. The following information was taken from a memo possesed by a police officer.

Opal: opalo, crowbar, doors, dunk, juice, pearl

Opal (hycephamitamyn) Opal is commonly distributed as a black liquid. The most potent and efficient form of ingestion is intravenous. Opal conveniently comes in a small glass "I-VIAL" - a 1.5" small glass cylinder about the diameter of a small drinking straw with a small red cap at each end. Removing the cap on one end reveals a ready-to-insert 1/4" sterile needle, the other end reveals a trigger to release the pressurized contents directly into the bloodstream.

In middle and upper class populations, users drop or inject into the eye. This temporarily turns the whites of the eyes black.

Although most Opal users are standard drug abusers, a sizable minority feel that the drug produces a special, quasi-religious experience.

Opal is an extraordinary visionary awakener, it is not a recreational drug. It produces a profoundly introspective state of awareness that is useful for meditation, contemplation, and self-reflection. Its effects are unique and cannot be compared with the effects of other drugs. In the right setting, if you are prepared Opal is a shamanistic drug that will broaden your mind so you can experience a bigger totality of experience. Occasionally, opal users will experience the dark side of that totality and feel the rape of Gala from man's greed and short-sightedness. Users have reported that they feel diseased, or that they feel the presence of a larger being holding them accountable for the sins of humanity against the planet1.

Opal can produce euphoric and hallucinogenic effects. In addition, it may generate many of the same toxic effects seen with other stimulants such as cocaine. Many US emergency departments (EDs) now treat as many opal-intoxicated patients as methamphetamine-intoxicated or cocaine-intoxicated patients. Changes in mood, excitation, motor movements, sensory perception, and appetite appear to be mediated by central dopaminergic alterations. Serotonin alterations contribute to the amphetamine-related mood changes and psychotic behavior. Organic compounds stimulating limbic centers cause dream-like hallucinations.

1 From Opalescent Haze, an "underground" user site that has been allowed to run to provide law enforcement with a resource to identify users. Like heroin, cocaine, or methampetamine users, opal users a naturally self-limiting population regulated primarily by disease, overdose and the toxic effects of the lifestyle and drug abuse. Most will probably either "get clean" in about five to ten years or dies. However, since they are obviously guilty of drug abuse and subversive browsing, users from the site can usually be coerced into providing intelligence and information on other users and criminals they are in contact with.

The following post, from lovemonger of Another Version of the Truth, implies that Opal induces visions of The Presence, as described by Opalescent Haze:

Opal puts you in touch with it. I’ve been on the spike for the past four years. I stole money from my grandma, got caught, did it again anyway, just to cop. For the last couple months, it’s been too hard so I went to Opal.

I saw the Presence yesterday. At first I knew it was the drug, just gripping me, you know? And I laughed. Then the Presence turned around, like it was LOOKING for me.

Parallels have been drawn to Black Oil from The X-Files television series. (Someone with more knowledge about this should update.)
