about Fire Opal
Fire opal is named after its colors yellow, orange and a brilliant scarlet. Fire opal is usually fairly translucent, milky, and without opal's iridescence. lack of iridescence is due to the fact that the spheres of silica composing it are to large. Fire opal is strongly characterized by its color, combined with an "amorphous" look unlike that of transparent crystalline gems. Fire opal is quite hard like other opals. There is no other stone that resembles it. Deposits are found in Mexico, Brazil, Guatamala, the United State and Western Australia. Opal is designated as the birthstone of October.
