Note: Fire opal is a brightly coloured member of the opal family found in colours ranging from yellow through orange to brilliant red. It rarely shows the play of colour found in the precious opal of Australia, and it is the vibrancy and depth of its rich colour which has led to its recent popularity. Originally found only in Mexico, and often considered its national gemstone, significant deposits are now also found in Brazil.
