Last Friday I received a box of Juniper Ridge Fire Opal from a friend at Cascadegems.com. I always believed precious opal was fire opal because the bright flashy color in it is often referred to as the fire. You can imagine my surprise when I opened the box and found pieces that were transparent amber and red in color.
