What collectors know as the “Dragon’s Breath” stone was first used in jewelry manufacture in the early 1900s. Made of glass, it emulates a cross between the Mexican fire opal and jelly opal. Molten metals were added to the glass during manufacture to provide the fiery coloration of these stones. Excerpt from the Aug. 25, 2010 Ruby Lane Blog.
