Item Description

These gems are some of the most popular Opals for color, size and gemminess in the world. There has been a surge in the price of fine quality Fire Opal / Jelly Opal from Mexico in the last few years, as the material seems to be more and more difficult to obtain, especially in such vivid stones like this one. This gem is a fairly good size stone with typical "jelly" appearance and a "Pear Brilliant" cut. The color is a saturated red-orange hue and the stone is eye clean for all intents and purposes. A great example of this classic material.
