but you still have not guess the clown of the mineral kingdom. (And, no it was not harlequin opal, though that is an excellent answer.)

Dchallener: "the clown of the mineral kingdom" if asking a riddle, then my answer is probably Chalcedony, the Agate. Or Ammolite

So, it's not fool's gold (pyrite)? This was my first guess.

Then, does the mineral share its name with a clown (real or fictional)? (i.e. like grimaldiite, pierrotite..)

fool's gold is another excellent answer, though not what I had in mind. Not sure why chalcedony was being guessed?

Is the mineral a clown because it's wearing 'ridiculous' makeup? (i.e. like 'aqua aura' quartz or 'mystic' topaz..)

This riddle (and I am probably giving away to much) is punny.

For the record, it isn't a riddle so much as a joke. But at least it's kinda funny.
