Fire opals are formed when water interacts with silicon dioxide. Water runs through the earth and picks up traces of this naturally sparkling silica from the surrounding sandstone. This silica solution goes through other layers of rock and sediment, picking up traces of different elements along the way. It makes its way into voids created by a variety of natural faults and, over time, the process is repeated and an opal is formed. This multi-layered process results in gemstones that are unique in their depth of color and ability to sparkle.
