Fire opals with play-of-color

Mexico shares a long history and tradition in the opal mining and trading business with Australia. Fire Opals from Mexico were formed by the gigantic power of volcanic activity. That's why you find rocks containing opal in the Mexican highlands, with its many extinct volcanoes, particularly in the areas around Magdalena in the province of Jalisco and Querétaro about 200 kilometers north of Mexico City. In the mining of this precious gemstone, you see impressive open cuts, with up to 60 meter high walls and labyrinthine corridors with are carved by the miners to expose these fabulous opals.

The Mexican Opal fields are extensive, but the mining which is mostly done by hand is time consuming. Like most mining the costs are high and the risks great. It takes endurance and luck to find the beautiful Fire Opals.
Fire Opals, like all other opals, consist of silica, with a relatively high proportion of water. Their wonderful, lively and warm body colors which are due to traces of iron oxide range from bright yellow, to orange to a vivid cherry red.

Fire Opals with play-of-color are extremely rare and are highly valued treasures. They are usually cut in cabochons. They are priced much higher than good faceted Fire Opals without play-of-color. The rarest and most desirable Fire Opals from Mexico is the intense red-orange opal with strong play-of-color.

Fire Opals are gemstones which give warmth and energy to the wearer. Their bright orange always attracts attention. The rare body color conveys vitality and joy of life, and at the same time, these gems are pieces of absolutely true nature.
