Interesting Fact: Mexico is the main source of the Mexican fire opal. These very highly-prized Mexican fire opals are excavated in open-cast mines in Queretaro, Mexico. However, the stone can also be found in Guatemala, Honduras, the United States, and Australia, where more precious varieties are known to be found. Germany has been importing most of Mexico’s best fire opals for many decades now.
