In this colorful variety of fire opals, the luminous opal is fused with the surrounding host rock, the matrix, which often consists of reddish-brown ryolite (magmatic stone). Against the backdrop of the inconspicuous host rock, the whole splendor of the Fire Opal stratum unfolds. Their mostly fire-red to orange-yellow basic color reminds us of the glowing volcanoes in which the Mexican fire opals once formed. However, a fire opal matrix can sometimes appear almost transparent, giving us the impression of looking at the bottom of a clear lake through opalescent rainbow colors. Depending on the incidence of light, there is always a different picture. The infinite variety of formations can show shimmering miniature landscapes and magical images that cast a spell over our history. There are no limits to the fantasy of viewing a Fire Opal matrix. Therefore, this opal variety is also considered a symbol of cheerfulness and joy of life and is particularly popular with artists and creative people.
