Mexican Opals are known for their vivid yellow, orange or orange-red colors. The intense color has earned this gem the nickname fire opal. Unlike precious opal, the Mexican Opal does not usually exhibit a play of color. But it makes up for this with its remarkable body color. It is the few varieties of opal that can successfully be faceted, as some specimens can exhibit considerable transparency.

Mexican Opal is rated at 5.5 to 6.5 on Moh’s Scale of hardness. The physical structure of Opal is unique.

Mexican Opal is considered a mineraloid and has no crystal structure. The term used for no structure is amorphous. Opal is scientifically written as SiO2 NH2O or hydrated silicon dioxide.  Opal typically contains a significant water content. Stones that can commonly form Opal are limestone, basalt, rhyolite and sandstone.
