Opal Doublet Information

Opal Doublet as the name suggests, is a thin layer of precious Opal cemented onto a backing, usually a piece of common Black Opal or Ironstone. They were originally created from Opal that was perhaps too thin to produce a solid stone. Opal doublets are a cheap and inexpensive way to buy a colorful piece of precious Opal without the cost of a solid Opal. Some of the patterns and the brightness of the Opal doublets is incredible.

What Is An Opal Doublet?

Imagine taking a thin piece of opal maybe only a few mm’s thick and gluing it to a thicker backing. This is exactly what an Opal doublet is. The easiest way to detect an Opal doublet is to turn it on the side and look for the join between the Opal and the backing. This is also an important time to mention Opal Triplets. Like an Opal Doublet, a Triplet is made by gluing Opal to a sold backing. However if the Opal is extremely thin sometimes a clear cap is placed over the Opal. The cap can be made of Quartz of plastic sometimes even plastic.

What Is The Back Of An Opal Doublet Made Of?

Opal doublets are generally set onto strong Ironstone backing which is a brown in colour. The thin slice of Opal is enhanced by the brown Ironstone and greatly increases the colour of the Opal. A slice of Opal in a doublet is a lot thicker than a Opal Triplet.

Other material such as Black Opal potch can be used as well as plastic. Ironstone is by far the most common choice because it is a natural stone and it can be found in abundance.

Opal Doublet Uses

Opal doublets are ideal to make matching sets of Opal earrings, pendants or rings as it is easy to match the colour closely. In nature it is very rare to get matching opals, so doublets are popular in the opal industry to make matching sets.

When opal doublets are used in jewelry you will most likely find a bessel set. This is where the metal is rounded up and over the opal. This has the 2 effects

  1. It hides and protects the join between the natural Opal and the backing
  2. It gives the illusion of a large natural solid Opal

Where Do Opal Doublets Come From?

Opal doublets originally were made in Lightning Ridge, Australia by using opal crystal and set on natural Black Opal potch. These days the ability to make opal doublets is shared across the world and Ironstone is also used for the backing.

How Do I Care For My Opal Doublet?

Opal doublets are just as strong as a solid opal but because they have been ‘glued’ together with a backing piece of Ironstone it is important not to clean your piece of jewelry with ultrasonic cleaners or strong chemicals. Simply wipe over with a cloth and warm soapy water.

蛋白石双峰信息

Opal Doublet顾名思义,是一层薄薄的珍贵蛋白石粘合在背衬上,通常是一块普通的黑欧泊或铁石。它们最初是由Opal制造的,可能太薄而不能生产出坚固的石头。蛋白石双层床是一种廉价而廉价的方式,可以购买一块色彩丰富的珍贵蛋白石而不需要坚固的蛋白石。蛋白石双峰的一些图案和亮度令人难以置信。

什么是蛋白石双峰?

想象一下,可能只需要几毫米厚的蛋白石,并将其粘在较厚的背衬上。这正是Opal双峰的意义所在。检测Opal双合透镜的最简单方法是将其转向侧面并寻找Opal和背衬之间的连接。这也是提到Opal Triplets的重要时刻。就像Opal Doublet一样,Triplet是通过将Opal粘合到销售的背衬上而制成的。然而,如果蛋白石非常薄,有时会在蛋白石上方放置一个透明的盖子。盖子可以由石英塑料制成,有时甚至是塑料。

什么是蛋白石双峰的背面?

蛋白石双峰通常设置在坚固的铁质背衬上,其颜色为棕色。棕色铁矿石增强了蛋白石的薄片,大大增加了蛋白石的颜色。一片蛋白石在双合透镜中比Opal Triplet厚很多。

可以使用其他材料,例如Black Opal potch以及塑料。铁石是迄今为止最常见的选择,因为它是一种天然石材,它可以在很多地方找到。

蛋白石双峰使用

蛋白石双合透镜非常适合制作配套的蛋白石耳环 ,吊坠或戒指,因为它很容易与颜色紧密搭配。在自然界中,获得匹配的蛋白石是非常罕见的,因此双峰在蛋白石行业中很受欢迎以制作匹配组。

当蛋白石双峰用于珠宝时,您很可能会找到一个贝塞尔套装。这是金属向上和蛋白石上方的地方。这有两个影响

  1. 它隐藏并保护天然蛋白石和背衬之间的连接
  2. 它给人一种大型天然固体蛋白石的错觉

蛋白石双峰来自哪里?

蛋白石双峰最初是在澳大利亚的Lightning Ridge使用蛋白石水晶和天然黑欧泊盆栽制作的。如今,制作蛋白石双峰的能力在全世界范围内共享,而Ironstone也用于支持。

我如何照顾我的蛋白石双峰?

蛋白石双峰与固体蛋白石一样坚固,但因为它们与铁石的背衬“胶合”在一起,所以不要用超声波清洁剂或强力化学品清洁你的首饰。只需用布和温肥皂水擦拭即可。
