The Fire Gem (in Tagalog: Brilyante ng Apoy) is one of the four elemental gems cleaved from the Mother Gem. It is ruby-red and has the shape of a teardrop. The kingdom of Hathoria is the keeper of the Fire Gem.

Of the four elemental gemstones, the Fire Gem is infamously known for being used for evil. It has a strong bond with the Royal House of Hathoria.[1]

It chose Diwani Deshna of Hathoria, daughter of Rama Hagorn of Hathoria and Hara (de facto) LilaSari of Lireo, as its new master possibly due to her dominant Hathor royal blood - being a descendant of Rama Arvak of Hathoria - and her feisty personality just like her edea Pirena[2].

It is the only known Gem that freely chose its keepers twice: Hara Pirena of Hathoria and Diwani Deshna of Hathoria.


The keeper of the Fire Gem is granted fire-based powers.

Some powers of the Fire Gem:

  • Shoot fire[3]
  • Deprive a place of heat and light, causing winter and darkness.[4]
  • Shapeshifting (Pirena retained the ability even without the possession of the gem)[4]
  • Locate Encantados through the heat of their blood.[5]
  • Bless others with quick wit to be able to adapt quickly to the ways of humans while living in their realm.[6]
  • Increase a person or an object's temperature[7][8]
  • Take away consciousness of a person ("fire of life")[7][9]
  • Inflict burns on faces[10]
  • Keep something hidden[11]
  • Give warning about nearby explosives[12]


After Cassiopea divided the Mother Gem into four parts, she gave the Fire Gem to the Hathors of Hathoria. The Fire Gem has greatly helped Hathoria's smiths to harness its "red metal" to produce high quality edge and projectile weapons for the kingdom's wars.

Hathoria waged wars against the other kingdoms. Prince Raquim acquired the gem and gave it to the Queen of Lireo.

Pirena believed that her mother Minea cheated her in the contest for the succession to the throne. Pirena challenged her mother to a duel, accepting her defeat should she lose and being the queen should she win. Her mother ends the battle prematurely. Angered, Pirena tried to steal the four gems, but only the Fire Gem came with her. Unknown to her, her Hathor lineage, being a granddaughter of its original keeper, Arvak, allowed her to gain access to the gem.

Pirena teleported away to Hathoria with the gem to connive with King Hagorn to help her take over Lireo. This gesture prompted Minea to pass on the remaining gems to her other children.

After many years, Cassiopea sought the Pedestal to help her in finding the new Gem masters, the Fire Gem chose Diwani Deshna of Hathoria to become its new master.


  • It was claimed that the Fire Gem was transferred to Danaya when Pirena died,[13] but this is not shown in any of the aired episodes and can be considered non-canonical. Off-screen transfers are highly suspect, given that all gem transfers have been shown explicitly.

Version differences

  • In the original series, the Fire Gem's kambal diwa, Alipato, has the power to resurrect the dead.
  • In the 2005 Encantadia,Pirena(and Mira) has natural born fire powers despite not holding the fire gem yet . The only difference is her fire powers become significantly stronger once she obtains the fire gem. However, if the fire gem is stolen from her, the new keeper could command the fire gem to "turn off" her fire powers. After Hagorn stole the fire gem from Pirena's soul, he commands it to remove Pirena and Mira's powers. He later commanded the gem to return Mira's powers when Mira fell under Hagorn's control.
  • In the 2016 version,Pirena is totally powerless without the fire gem.


  1. Several members of the Hathor royal family had held this gem, such as Arvak, Hagorn and Pirena. When Cassiopea asked the Fire Gem symbol to look for a new master, it chose Deshna.
