The Green Fire Mine is similar in geology and paragenesis to the Yellow Cat Mine, also in the Clear Creek Area. It is notable for andradite garnets going from colorless over yellow to green. The crystals are almost exclusively classic, simple dodecahedrons. Amber colored garnets from here are often labelled as "topazolte", green garnets are called "demantoid". Most garnets formed on clinochlore, often in close association of colorless to white, prismatic diopside crystals. Some garnets also have diopside inclusions.
