Many people mistakenly think that a fire opal is simply an opal with a lot of red showing in its beautiful, iridescent display of colors. This is an understandable mistake as the word “fire” usually refers to this beautiful iridescent display of colors opals possess, not the opal’s actual body color. A Mexican fire opal is actually very different than the opal we are used to seeing. While an opal is opaque and white, displaying an iridescent play of colors in every color of the rainbow, the Mexican fire opal is transparent to translucent, with a uniform red, orange, yellow, or brownish body color. Fire opals can come either with or without a play of color or fire. Iron content is what gives Mexican fire opals their orange color. The best, most highly prized specimen are transparent, have a play of color within the stone, and are of a fire-red orange color.

The Mexican fire opal has many positive attributes to bring to the life of its wearer. Physically, it is said to have the power to heal the lower back, kidneys, and can stimulate sexual organs. Mentally, the fire opal is said to be a wonderful stone for those people who are shy and lack self-confidence. Its fire supposedly rouses them and gives them the boost of self-confidence they need. The fire opal is also said to be able to help those who have just suffered from abusive relationships. As the stone is said to be able to heal and relieve memories of rape, incest and sexual abuse, it also encourages positive and healthy sexuality and relationships. Fire opal symbolizes joy of the heart. It has also been said to be used to attract money. Placing a fire opal in your place of business is a good way to attract customers.
