Variscite Rock slab 0601
Variscite is a relatively rare aluminum phosphate mineral closely related to turquoise in its chemical composition. This material from Utah is noted for its glowing green color, varying in intensity from a light, mint green to a vibrant Kelly green often "webbed" in a gray matrix. Although softer than agate or jasper (somewhere around 5 on the Moh's scale) it takes a great polish and makes wonderful finished pieces.
Dimensions: 3" x 2 and approximately 6.9 mm thick. Weight = 52 grams.
Shown wet. Not polished. Known flaws are shown as white lines in the final picture frame.
