It does not look like real opal to me. Perhaps opal moonstone has a different meaning  I'll check and get back later. When I googled moonstone and then hit images this did not look like anything there. The stone itself may be but the stylized white enamel doesn't fit.

I still think its possible for it to be opal - i.e. a hyalite with play of color. It could also be chalcedony or glass. The sheen is slightly off from typical moonstone.
