“A gemstone for people with a positive approach to life”
Although nine Mexican states have produced these magnificent gems, Querétaro and Jalisco—two centrally located states—are the primary origins for most opals labeled “Mexican.”
Mexican Fire Opal is named for its brilliant red to orange body color which is partly due to iron oxide. Mined in Mexico, this opal is lighter weight than other opal. These Mexican Fire Opals tend to have one body color and do not usually contain the flashes of light and color typical of other opals. Mexican fire opal is the only natural opal that is normally faceted. Light and Dark Mexican Fire Opal varies from a bright orange to a reddish orange and is brilliant cut with precise calibration.
The Aztec Indians of Mexico were among the first to know about this fiery gem. Europeans learned about Mexican fire opals when the Spanish conquistadors returned from the New World with this brilliant gem.
