This beautiful fiery piece of Mexican Crystal Opal was carved by Henry Hunt. These opals have funny nomenclature. The guys with the orange, red or yellow base color are called fire opal for the color. They rarely have play of color, the spectral colors we see in this gem. So this isn't Mexican Fire Opal, but Mexican Crystal Opal with play of color. Whew. The sterling pendant is one inch tall and hangs from an 18 inch sterling chain.
