Keep in mind that due to exposure and necessary extraction methods crystals may not have perfect faces/points/edges.
Fire Opal is named after its vivid orange color. It does not usually opalesce, but it is sometimes clear enough to make into faceted gems, and these can be strikingly beautiful. The most significant sources of Fire Opal are in Mexico, but deposits have also been found in Brazil, Guatemala, Honduras, Turkey, Australia and the United States.
This Cantera Opal was collected and hand polished by artisans in Mexico.
