This is a beautiful Mexican opal that has a smooth orange body colour. This opal does not have extreme play of colour, but the body tone colour makes it a great Mexican opal.
Mexican opal is a very unique type of opal. The most expensive type of mexican opal is the type that has a very deep red body colour. After the body tone is assesed, the play of colour is the next feature of the opal. Mexican opal is the only opal where a deep red opal with no play of colour will be more expensive than any other Mexican opal.
