  • Mexican fire opal is a mesmerizing gemstone renowned for its vibrant orange to red hues, reminiscent of flickering flames. Unlike other opal varieties, which often exhibit a play-of-color phenomenon, Mexican fire opal's allure lies in its translucent to transparent body and intense coloration. This gemstone is formed through a combination of silica gel and water in volcanic regions, with Mexico being a prominent source.

Mexican Fire Opal, known for its vibrant hues ranging from yellow and orange to deep red, receives is signature color from traces of iron. Unlike most opals, Mexican Fire Opal can be faceted, but requires special care due to its sensitivity to temperature and humidity changes. Formed in volcanic rock, this gem was used as early as 850 AD by the Aztecs. Opal is traditionally associated with the 34th wedding anniversary and is the birthstone for October.
