While many associate opal’s name only with those types that always display magnificent play-of-color, there is another beautiful opal variety that is often overlooked—Fire Opal. Fire opal gemstones glow with the fire of the volcanoes that spewed lava where they are produced so long ago: yellows, oranges and reds that are so bright you might think they would glow in the dark! While some fire opals can have the famous play-of-color so closely associated with the gem, they don’t need this phenomenon to captivate you. The most valuable fire opals are transparent and red, often called cherry opal because of their bright, bold colors. Ranging from transparent to translucent in appearance, fire opals have their own following in the world of gemstone collectors and aficionados.
