The color of the Mexican fire opal is a result of iron oxide found within the stone. Usually, they are orange to red in color. A deep red colored Mexican fire opal is sometimes referred to as a cherry opal. Fire opals are also unique in that they contain water. They are sometime referred to as wet stones. The more transparent and the deeper the color, the more valuable the stone will be.

Ancient Aztecs used Mexican fire opal in their mosaic creations and in their many rituals. Many people of today’s era believe the stone creates positive emotions and gives us energy

The more beautiful an opal is, the more valuable it is. Beauty is enhanced by brighter fire , fire in many colours (especially red) , and a clear or dark base color for the fire to play off . The best black opals with red fire can have a retail price of US$20,000 or more per carat. This makes them more valuable than most diamonds.

Opals occur worldwide in primarily volcanic areas where the eruptions of time gone by, caused water to be suddenly trapped within the silica base . Good fire opal occurs in limited quanitities in certain areas of Mexico.
