what is harlequin pattern opalIn the world of Opals, the Harlequin Opal is the one stone that collectors, opal lovers and miners all wish they could find. This is an extremely rare pattern. Some stones may contain just a small part of the opal in this pattern but the pattern needs to encase the whole stone not just one part in order to be called a true Harlequin Opal.

Harlequin Opal Definition

A true Harlequin pattern is a repeating pattern of contracting diamonds or elongated squares

The word Harlequin was a French word used in the 16th century to describe the comedian in an opera play commedia dell’arte and this character wore an outfit with irregular shapes in bight colours .

This pattern has been unique to black opals from Lightning Ridge and red fire is by far the most rare. Black Opal with a body tone of N1 with this pattern can be worth around $5,000 to $30,000 per carat on the opal fields. It show just how rare this pattern is that buyers are willing pay this money on the opal fields.

The below pictures are of the same stone from uncut to final polish. It is amazing to think that such an unassuming stone in the rough will produce one of the rarest gemstones on the planet.

Harlequin Pattern Opal

Ethiopian opals might also have this harlequin pattern but from 20,000 Ethiopian opals sold only 3-4 have actually had a true Harlequin Opal pattern. You will see lots of harlequin opal listed on other sites that are not true harlequin opals.

Most Miners, if lucky might only find one true Harlequin Opal in their lifetime. Barry O’Leary’s (Opal author) definition of a Harlequin opals is ”precious opal showing a regular mosaic-like chromatic pattern in rounded, angular, or roughly square patches of about equal size presenting a spangled appearance.” This has opened up a whole lot of interruption on the pattern with many stones listed on the internet as Harlequin but which would not be called that if shown to opal valuers and professional dealers.

Find Your Own Harlequin Opal

što je harlekin uzorak opal U svijetu opala Harlequin Opal je kamen koji skupljači, ljubitelji opala i rudari svi žele da mogu pronaći. Ovo je izuzetno rijedak uzorak. Neko kamenje može sadržavati samo mali dio opala u ovom obrascu, ali uzorak mora obuhvatiti cijeli kamen, a ne samo jedan dio da bi bio nazvan pravim harlekinskim opalom.

Harlekin Opal Definition

Pravi Harlekin uzorak je ponavljajući uzorak dijamanata ili izduženih kvadrata

Riječ Harlequin bila je francuska riječ koja se koristila u 16. stoljeću za opis komičara u opernoj predstavi commedia dell'arte, a ovaj je lik nosio odjeću nepravilnih oblika u jarkim bojama.

Ovaj je obrazac jedinstven po crnim opalima s munjevog grebena, a crvena vatra je daleko najređenija. Crni opali s tjelesnim tonom N1 s ovim uzorkom mogu na opalnim poljima vrijediti oko 5000 do 30 000 dolara po karatu. Pokazuje koliko je rijedak ovaj obrazac da su kupci spremni platiti taj novac na opalijskim poljima.

Slike na slici su od istog kamena od neobrezanog do konačnog laka. Nevjerojatno je misliti da će takav neupadljiv kamen u grubo proizvesti jedan od najrjeđih dragulja na planeti.

Etiopijski opali također mogu imati ovaj harlekin model, ali od 20.000 prodanih etiopskih opala samo 3-4 su ustvari imali pravi Harlekin Opal. Vidjet ćete puno harlekinskih opala navedenih na drugim mjestima koja nisu pravi harlekinski opali.

Većina rudara, ako ima sreće, možda će tijekom života naći samo jedan pravi Harlekin Opal. Definicija Harlequinovih opala Barryja O'Learyja (autor Opala) je „dragocjeni opal koji prikazuje pravilan mozaični kromatski uzorak u zaobljenim, kutnim ili otprilike kvadratnim zakrpama približno jednakih veličina, a koji imaju oblik.“ To je otvorilo čitav niz prekida u obrascu s mnogim kamenjem navedenim na internetu kao Harlequin, ali koje se ne bi moglo nazvati ako se to pokaže opalnim procjeniteljima i profesionalnim trgovcima.
