Gemstone Information
Fire Opal

Unique and mysterious, fire opals are appropriately named for their fiery cherry, sunburst yellow, and deep tangerine coloration. Unlike precious opal, fire opal does not usually display play of color; specimens that do are highly valuable. Mexico is a primary source of fire opal, where it was treasured by the Aztecs who called it "gem of the bird of paradise."
