- Opals that do not show the beautiful play on colours are merely named Common Opals (Gem by Gem). There are many different kinds of common opals, such as the Fire Opal.

- In Medieval Times it was thought that the Fire Opal could cure such diseases as red corpuscle, blood disorders, depression, apathy and lethargy (All Gem Stones, 2003).
