Fairy opal is a type of treated matrix opal.  The treatment consists of giving the opal a hot sugar bath, which turns the original sandy brown matrix to a deep black/brown.  This is often felt to be more attractive and helps the colours pop out more.  It is a lovely kind of opal with colours scattered in pin prick or confetti pattern all over the stone (in fact, it is sometimes known as confetti opal).
