Ever Heard of Fire Opals?
Fire opals are all about the color: fiery yellows, fiery oranges and fiery reds. They may be translucent or transparent with flashes of red, yellow, and orange. Mother Nature creates fire opals very much like blue/green Australian opals except in orange colors. Sometimes you find them with opal’s characteristic play of colors but sometimes you find a completely crystal opal. We love both types. The fiery colors come from iron oxide impurities. Beauties like these used to come almost exclusively from Mexico. However, Ethiopia became an important source in the 1990s but with predominantly yellow colors.
From the Spark Creations Opal Collection
For over 30 years we’ve come to trust the quality and brilliance of Spark’s gorgeous colored gems. We have never gotten a stone from them that we didn’t think was stunning. Plus, we appreciate their finely crafted settings and designs. This pendant is in two-tone 18K gold, both white and yellow. Included, is an 18K yellow gold chain. Small round diamonds surrounding the opal are set in white gold as well as the diamond bail (that the chain goes through). The gold accent work and the chain are in yellow gold.
