Hi,

I am currently working in Mexico on some projects here the next 1-2 years, so I will travel back and forth between Norway and Southern Mexico thru Mexico City every 5 weeks.
I am trying to use this possibility to find and purchase some good/top grade mexican fire opal facet rough.

My search on the internet for local sellers/online shops based in for example Mexico city is with rather less good results.
My lack of local language skills is not helping.

Does anyone know/have any tip on how I could use my free travel thru Mexico City combined with online resources/contacts to pick up some parcels with this material. Any other facet rough in Mexico would also be interesting. Like Danburite, Topaz and so on.

Any advice/expiriences how to aproach this would be much appreciated.

Maybe this fit better in some other forum like "Colored stones", but Im trying here first.

Let me know if you find some good stable Mexican topaz (Guerrero mine). I love that stuff.
