Product SKU: ARB-385

Fire opal ring, circa 1940. Fire opals are an unusual variety of opal, found primarily in Mexico. Popularised in the 19th century, fire opals only occasionally show the rainbow iridescence associated with most opals, but more than make up for it with their distinctive and highly attractive body colours, ranging from a glowing orange to a deep cherry red. This oval cut fire opal shows the classic bright orange body colour for which these stones are best known. A striking and bold cocktail ring – the perfect statement piece for special occasions.
