At first glance this item appears to be a fantastic Welo opal, but it is actually a rare agate. This polished fire agate is from Mexico. It has a dark brown base that highlights the multicolored color flashes that cover nearly its entire surface. It is a great collection piece for display or at a Mohs hardness of 6.5 – 7 could also be suited for a necklace centerpiece or pendant. Unlike some opals, this piece is temperature stable, and unlike many other fire agates, has almost no matrix interrupting the beautiful dancing colors.
