    When I went to the Tucson Gem Show this year, top of my list was 'Find Fire Opal'. The most famous Fire Opals come from Querétaro in Mexico - and as Tucson is right on the border and all the miners come to sell their rough gems, I had high hopes as I have usually found a good choice before, but after three days what little I had seen was pretty lacklustre.

Graduated rondelle strand, with the largest 7/8mm, 43cm with an elegant gilded sterling silver clasp. Look at the detail pictures.
