    Very interesting! Would you have knowledge of the Mexican fire opal?? This is a subject up till now I was alone in. For awhile now I to have been searching for gems – lab manufactured or otherwise. Of course I am always concerned with finding reliable manufacturers with consistent grade output. Well done, thank you eBay for continuing to inspire us – your clients and associates.
