Querétaro: the Cradle of Opal Mining
 
In this region the opal deposits are located mainly in the mountain ranges of three municipalities: Columbus, Tequisquiapan and Ezequiel Montes.This magnificent Fire Opal is from the mines of La Trinidad in Tequisquiapan.

 Fire Opal gemstones are something unique in the splendid world of Opals. Even in ancient times, in India and the Persian empire, in the empires of Central America and in Native American tribes they were cherished as symbols of deepest love. Such gemstones sparkling with utmost vividness like Fire Opals were believed to have originated in the waters of paradise. Mayas and Aztecs loved it for jewellery and used it also for mosaics and religious cults. It was named “Quetzalitzlipyollitli“, which means“ Stone of the Bird of Paradise“. But there came a time when the gemstone knowledge handed down from generation to generation in Mexico was almost completely forgotten until sometime in the year 1835 when the fiery treasures hidden in the Mexican highlands were remembered, and a systematic mining was slowly beginning. Today Fire Opal is considered as the National Stone of the central American state.
